GENERAL EVENT NOTICE: Due to recent concern over the spread of the corona virus, suggests confirming with the actual organizers that this event is still proceeding as planned.

Event Details:

Nevertheless We Persist was originally conceived as a live celebration of the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, but has steadily transformed into a virtual concert program with an even larger purpose. Through the lens of classical music and opera, we wish to draw attention to intersectional issues in the fight for women’s equality and civil rights by examining the characterization, treatment, and disenfranchisement of women in both the real world and in the stories we tell on the operatic and concert stage.
