Let Women Choose Her Sphere

Let Women Choose Her Sphere
This concert by the University Concert Band with special guest speakers, singers, and composers utilizes the centenary of the ratification of the 19th amendment as an opportunity to showcase the broader fight for equality throughout this country’s history to the present day. It is well known that only white women gained the right to vote in 1920, and the fight for truly universal suffrage continued in earnest for decades. But suffrage alone is not enough, and the fight for equality in all areas of public and private life continues. We celebrate the voices of those who have stood up and spoken out for rights in America. From Jane Adams to Janet Mock, this event is for ALL.

At 6:30pm gather outdoors on Ingalls Mall (beside Hill Auditorium) to hear a prelude from the Burton Tower carillon of music by the first women to break carillon glass ceilings in the early 20th century.

At 7:15pm please join the composers and conductor in the lower lobby of Hill Auditorium for a pre-concert lecture.
