by admin on 27/02/2019

South Tipperary Arts Centre are delighted to launch the second edition of Finding a Voice – a celebration of women composers for International Women’s Day. We are very grateful for funding by the Arts Council of Ireland for this concert series.
For our 2019 edition, due to take place from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th March, Finding a Voice focuses on the music of women composers through the ages, building and expanding on our highly successful inaugural series in 2018 but celebrating in particular the anniversaries of three significant women composers: the 400th anniversary of the birth of celebrated Italian baroque composer Barbara Strozzi (1619-1677); the 200th anniversary of the birth of German romantic composer Clara Schumann (1819-1896); and the 70th birthday of renowned Canadian composer Alexina Louie (b. 1949), who is coming Ireland for the very first time to be present for a concert of her music.
