A Concert for Hope
When: March 8 2019
Where: Windsor, Canada
A Concert for Hope: Chamber music for flute and strings composed by women and played by women. A fundraiser for women's charities on each side of the Detroit River: Women's Center Shelter for Women and Children in Windsor and Warrior Women Against Poverty in Detroit. The concert is very reasonably priced at $35 which includes the performance and a reception that includes crêpes by MIAM French Crêpes and hors d’oeuvres by Koolini Italian Eatery. Proceeds to Women's Center Shelter and Warrior Women Against Poverty.
A Concert for Hope arose out of our determination to celebrate women’s achievements while fundraising for women’s charities. Fundamental to our endeavour is a love for music and a recognition of its power to uplift and comfort in troubling times. The world continues to work towards gender balance and the exercise of selecting orchestral music written by women composers highlighted that while important progress has been made, pressing for progress must continue. Classical music has sometimes been characterized as an elitiest form of music but our musicians are local activists for equality and making diversity and inclusion a part of our concert was fundamental to our endeavor.
