In 2001, the Oxford English Dictionary added the term girl power defining this phrase as “… a self-reliant attitude among girls and young women manifested in ambition, assertiveness, and individualism.” How do you give a Women of Power concert week some more girl power? Add a Master Class with Simone Dinnerstein; a reception honoring area women leaders; and a forum on Baltimore Women in the Arts, that’s how! On Thursday, October 1, from 5:30-7:30pm in Goodwin Hall at the Peabody Convervatory, the Peabody piano faculty hosts Simone Dinnerstein in a Master Class. The event is open to the public, but seats are limited. Single Carrot Theatre presents Bmore Women in the Arts Conversations Series with CAB Executive Director Tonya Robles on Friday, October 2, at 7:00pm. Prior to the October 3rd concert, Concert Artists of Baltimore, along with Henry and Dorothy Rosenberg, hosts a reception to honor women leaders in the arts, education, and government (invitation only). All of these exciting happenings are just a warmup to the big event — the season opening concert on October 3 at 7:00pm at the Gordon Center For Performing Arts. Join us to hear internationally-renowned pianist Simone Dinnerstein play Brahms Piano Concert No. 1, Op. 15. Also featured is former Peabody composition professor Morris Moshe Cotel’s hauntingly beautiful My Shalom, My Peace (poems by Jewish and Arab children) and “one of the most unusual aria‘s you will ever hear” (Maestro Polochick): Ligeti’s Mysteries of the Macabre with striking soprano Melissa Wimbish.
“Count on Concert Artists of Baltimore to keep things interesting.”
(Tim Smith, The Baltimore Sun) — this concert will show you why. Don’t miss it.
