'Hers' Program

Comprised entirely of works by female composers, “HERS” vibrantly celebrates the vision, strength, resilience, and vital contributions of the female sex throughout history. Through music and storytelling, the Carr-Petrova Duo will lead its audiences through the inspirations, battles, and incredible accomplishments of eight fearless women – from the 13th century’s Hildegard Von Bingen to today’s Beyoncé – inviting audiences to share in the centuries of heartbreak, struggles, and triumphs that comprise the female experience.
