International Women’s Day Mini-Concert 2021

On Monday, March 8, 2021, at 8 pm Eastern Standard Time, Michael Lu performed a special, live-streamed mini-concert celebrating International Women’s Day. The program included works by women who span four centuries and hail from four continents: the Venezuelan Teresa Carreño (1853-1917); the Ethiopian Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou (b. 1923); the German Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel (1805- 1847); the Americans Jennifer Higdon (b. 1962) and Florence Price (1887-1953); and the Bohemian Juliane Reichardt (1752-1783). The replay is no longer available.
