Two projects celebrating the 19th amendment will premiere in 2020:
The multi-season Project 19, celebrating the centennial of the 19th amendment, launches in the 2019–20 season with World Premieres by women composers from the New York Philharmonic. More information here.
HINDSIGHT is a new work for piano and orchestra, composed by Paola Prestini for Lara Downes. The one-movement piece celebrates the centennial in 2020 of the 19th Amendment/Women’s right to vote. Its title refers to our perspective in current times: a look back, in the year 2020 and with the 20-20 vision of hindsight, at the role of women’s voices in America over the last 100 years. A collaboration with the Oregon Bach Festival, Ravinia, and Louisville Symphony.
