The PWC is delighted to be performing in Los Angeles with Vox Femina, one of the visiting guest choirs at the New Music for Treble Voices Festival in Palo Alto in March 2015.
Just in time for International Women’s Day, this concert weaves together the stories of noteworthy women through poetry, narration and song. Join us for an uncommon look at the political and social achievements of women in history, women of renown and women of extraordinary creativity.
