Washington Concert Opera: Women, Their Voices, and Nothing Less

November 8, 2020

 

“The true republic: men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less.” – Susan B. Anthony

The year 1920 marked a major turning point for equality in America: the year that the 19th Amendment was ratified, giving women the right to vote. On November 2, 2020, join Washington Concert Opera for a free online concert celebrating the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, filmed at the National Museum of Women in the Arts here in Washington, DC.

Featuring the music of Virgil Thomson, Florence B. Price, Undine Smith Moore, Joaquín Turina, and Enrique Granados.

Available through December 1, 2020!
