Women in Music:

 -- Master composer/soprano Gilda Lyons'stunning La Flor Más Lindawas composed as a response to the September 2018 march on the Nicaraguan dictatorial Ortega government. Ms. Lyons joins the Concert Band as soloist in Labyrinth of Love(Michael Daugherty), which celebrates the varied emotions of life, including despair and hope, through the poetry and prose of women throughout history.  http://www.gildalyons.com

 -- Germaine Tailleferrewas the only female member of Les Six, a group of young composers who, with Cocteau's encouragement, rebelled against the impressionistic "fog" and the "pathos" of Wagner. Her Ouvertureis the opener for her opera, Il était un Petit Navire, the farcical story of cannibalism on a ship adrift at sea!


 --  The five movements of Suite Française(Darius Milhaud) celebrate the folk tunes of provinces where American and Allied forces fought alongside the French underground during WWII. The incorporation of these melodies reinforces the idea of hope - which is the basis of freedom.
