Reacting to the Landscape: Whistling Hens in D.C.

In anticipation of the release of their debut album on Oct. 1, 2022, Whistling Hens will be clucking up a storm at this free outdoor event for St. Thomas Parish Sidewalk Series in a program featuring works by:
Cherise Leiter
Jennifer Stevenson
Iris Szeghy
Ashi Day
Jennifer Stevenson
Melika Fitzhugh
Victoria Bond

Reacting to the Landscape, the title of this program and Whistling Hens’ 10.1.22 debut album, comes from former Baltimore Symphony Orchestra conductor Marin Alsop. In a 2016 interview, she responded to the question of why a course for women conductors was needed by saying,
“…I think it’s a disingenuous question. It’s only necessary because of the reality. It’s not something I’m making up. I’m just reacting to the landscape…Because I have quite a thick skin, I don’t mind being the one out front, trying to elbow my way in. But I think, as that person out front, it’s important for me to create a pathway for people coming through. I don’t want it to be so hard for the next generations.”

So why women composers? Why now? We’re just reacting to the landscape. Join us.
