Suffrage Signatures -Preview Premiere

Composed in 2020 in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote, Suffrage Signatures is a four movement chamber work  which brings the private lives and intimate relationships of iconic New York suffragettes to life through music.  The inspiration for the work is the New York Public Library’s extensive collection of the handwritten letters of these New York pioneers.

This performance by Cante Libra at the American Opera Center is a preview of the official World Premiere at the historic Woodlawn Cemetery on June 7, 2020.
