Arts feature: Women in Music Columbus 3 p.m. Sunday, April 15

Concert features program of music by women composers 
Someday, perhaps, there won’t be a need to advocate and provide a platform for the work of women composers. Until that time, Women in Music Columbus, as it has done for almost 140 years, is on the case.
The local organization also advocates for women performers, offering multiple opportunities each season for its performing members to participate in recitals and concerts. These concerts often include the music of women composers. Additionally, every other year WMC puts out a call for submissions from women composers, with all selected works to be performed in one program. The Women Composers program will be held on Sunday, April 15, in Capital University’s Huntington Recital Hall.
“It’s part of our mission statement to promote women making music and women composers,” WMC President Cynthia Mahaney said, “and certainly providing performing opportunities is a big reason why many of our members join.”
In all, works by 11 composers will be featured in the program. Other works include “Light,” a vocal piece from a larger work by Cuban-American composer Sabrina Pena Young, and Jennifer Margaret Barker’s “A Lassie’s Love,” based on the poems of Robert Burns.

"So very excited that Women in Music Columbus will be performing my work "Light" from the Creation Oratorio." - Sabrina Peña Young
