Who can we look to as an example of how to live? Who are the women whose lives exemplified courage, power, daring, resilience, wild embrace of life? Who is she? In conjunction with the Eiteljorg Museum’s “Reel West” exhibit, IWC lifts up the voices and lives of outstanding, pioneering women who blazed trails, each living life as nobody but herself. Hear the words of leaders like Ella Baker, Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, and Eleanor Roosevelt, in musical settings by living composers, as well as stories of powerful women of the West and beyond. This music celebrates the women who came before, who bettered the world for us all.
