Join the Civic Orchestra Piano Quintet for a program of music written by women from the 12th century to the present. The rhythmic chants of German medieval mystic Hildegard von Bingen complement the playful madrigals of Italian Baroque singer and composer Barbara Strozzi. The piano quintet of 19th-century French composer and pianist Louise Farrenc shows off her romantic style and virtuosity at the keyboard. Rounding out the program is a work written by composer and Master of the Queen's Music Judith Weir. This event is free, with no tickets required.
