The BBC Singers, together with conductor Grace Rossiter and organist Anna Lapwood mark International Women’s Day with a live broadcast of music by leading women composers of the 21st Century. At the heart of the programme are three world premieres, including a BBC commission written for the occasion by Australian-American composer Melissa Dunphry, setting ‘I am the world’ by the Irish poet Dora Sigerson Shorter.
The BBC Singers and conductor Grace Rossiter are joined by organist and broadcaster Anna Lapwood, who plays works commissioned from her own new anthology of organ pieces by women composers, including Ghislaine Reece-Trapp, a former finalist in the BBC Radio 3 Breakfast Carol Competition, whose Mass for the Mystery of Faith also receives its world premiere in this concert.
Complimentary tickets are available to our Platinum & Black Cardholders for this exclusive & televised event honouring International Women's Day. If you are interested then please contact The Lexo Club Concierge for more information...
