Toronto Chamber Choir presents Kaffeemusik:

A Voice of Her Own

How did Europe's most gifted female composers come by their creative abilities? Was their musical talent innate, or did History provide them with extraordinary opportunities? And how did they become composers when such a path did not yet exist for women? The choir will present music by women from the Renaissance to the Romantic Eras, including some you have heard of such as Clara Schumann but many others you haven't. Professor Larson's commentary will reveal biographical information about these women and the societies in which they maneuvered, paying particular attention to the musical training available to them as young girls.

Donations will be taken at the concert to support Plan Canada (www.plancanada.ca) for the education of girls.

Elizabeth Anderson, guest conductor

Professor Katherine R. Larson (University of Toronto), narrator

Afternoon Kaffeemusiks combine music with an engaging lecture, as well as coffee and home-baked goodies.
