This program features all compositions by female composers and arrangers. Our program starts with an adaptation of Joseph Haydn's D minor String quartet , Op. 42 for Oboe quartet, by Peggy Pearson, a well renowned oboist in the Boston Area. Secondly, Bay Area composer Julie Barwick’s Shroud was written in 2015 for string trio, and is inspired by Amaranta, a character from Gabriel García Márquez’s “One Hundred Years of Solitude” who was ordered by Death to sew her own shroud. The image of weaving, or sewing, suggests an abundance of musical material and each instrument in the string trio acts as a different thread, creating an intricate, beautiful, but solemn, musical fabric. Our third work is by composer and oboist Marilyn Zupnik who began writing music for the oboe in 2007, and her compositions include Four Impressions for Solo Oboe, two quartets for oboe and string trio, and a Duo for Oboe and Cello. Lastly, In the slow tango style, Devree Lewis’ Luz de agosto is adapted from Argentinian Emmanuel Trifilio's piece for solo bandoneon. Named for Faulkner's novel “Light in August”, the work features a milonga campera rhythm, beating throughout its shifting melodies.  We hope you enjoy! (one or two of the actual composers might join us for this concert!)

Letitia VanSant

"Letitia VanSant takes the back road, real life, lifeblood music

of rural America, and through the force of her sparkling songwriting,

'stop the traffic' voice and sterling band, burnishes it till it shines."

In 2017 she won the Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition,

an honor shared along with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Lyle Lovett, Nanci Griffith,

Anais Mitchell, and Caroline Spence. Songs from her new album have also won critical acclaim from the Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest (Gold; Folk Category), Falcon Ridge (Emerging Artist), and Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriting Contest (1st Alternate).

She’s graced the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, and placed among the

Top 10 listener-voted “Songs of the Year” by her local radio station 89.7 WTMD.

BBC Radio calls her "very, very, very good - a fascinating new artist.
