Midsummer’s Music Ltd. and the Women’s Fund of Door County are partnering in four concerts featuring works by three female composers.
Audiences will learn about the challenges and triumphs these composers faced in a music world that was dominated by men. Mel Bonis will be portrayed by Sara Oswald, Laura Vlies, and Moriah Grahl, while Lizz Thomas and Donna Johnson take turns as Louise Farrenc, and Claire Morkin will play Amy Cheney Beach.
The program includes “Suite in E Minor, Op. 59,” by Bonis; “Sextet in C Minor, Op. 40,” by Farrenc; and “Quintet in C Minor, Op. 52,” by Beach. Concerts will be at 7 pm, June 30 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship; 7:30 pm, July 1 at Björklunden; 7 pm, July 7 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church; and 2 pm, July 8 at The Clearing Folk School. Tickets are $29 for adults, $10 for students, and free for children 12 and under. For tickets, visit midsummersmusic.com or call 920.854.7088.
