Celebrating Women in the Choral Arts

Spring 2023 Concert

May 13, 2023

From Hildegard de Bingen in the 12th century through to the present day, women have made a significant contribution to choral music which has often been overlooked. In support of the women behind these compositions and their contributions, the Windsor Classic Chorale is proud to present a program of entirely female composers.

There will be a reception immediately following the concert.
