Event description
We, the Whole People, a Concert Inspired by a Susan B. Anthony Speech Featuring Eight New Works Performed by the CompCord Ensemble.

About this Event

We, the Whole People is inspired by a speech Susan B. Anthony gave after her arrest for casting an illegal vote in the 1872 presidential election. Specifically for this concert, eight composers have written new music influenced, directly or indirectly, by Anthony's speech, the women's movement in general, and/or the constitutional amendment which guarantees equality for all people.

The CompCord Ensemble premiering these eight works consists of mezzo soprano, trumpet, electric guitar, piano/synthesizer, electric bass, viola da gamba, and drums/percussion.

Featured compositions include We by Gene Pritsker; The New Colossus by Debra Kaye, with text from Emma Lazarus' poem on the Statue of Liberty; and Hallie Quinn Brown by Madelyn Byrne.
