PHB Society Lecture-Recital: "Virtute Duce, comite Fortuna": Eighteenth-Century Music by Female Composers

  • Church of St. Michael the Archangel 7400 Tudor Road Colorado Springs, CO, 80919 United States (map)

Join Parish House Baroque, the PHB Society, and guest artists Dr. Alison DeSimone, harpsichord and Dr. Kimary Fick, baroque flute who are all excited to present our first PHB Society Event!

Female composers of the eighteenth century, like Anna Bon and Elisabetta de Gambarini, hovered between the public and the private, composing music out of sight, and yet marketing that music towards a broad selection of European society. This lecture-recital explores their music in order to understand how female composers were able to emerge from their limited gendered roles and engage professionally with the amateur musical society through music publication.

Come at 7 pm to enjoy hors d’oeuvres, wine, and fellowship! The program will begin at 7:30 pm.
