First Baptist Church
(140 Laurier AveNUE WEST)

Admission by freewill donation - no ticket purchase necessary, as part of our mandate to make high quality musical performances accessible to everyone!

In an Aella first, we perform an entire concert of choral works written by living women composers. WMN will feature the story of a woman's revenge on her would-be captor in Maid on the Shore, Sungji Hong's haunting and challenging Ficus enim non florebit, a fabulously fun new arrangement of Madonna's True Blue, and much more. Join us on Sunday, February 3 for a refreshing treat on a chilly afternoon as we celebrate music by women, for women's voices!

Featuring Shawn Potter (piano) and Thaddeus Morden (cello).
