Forest Hill Church Presbyterian
Tea reception and discussion at 4 PM, Fellowship Hall, with Jessica Kelley
Concert at 5 PM in the Sanctuary
We are excited to kick off Women’s History Month with a concert celebrating the works of female composers from the baroque era. Historically-informed musicians Guillermo Salas-Suárez (violin) and Andréa Walker (soprano) will present a dazzling performance of musical pieces with Qin-Ying Tan on the organ and harpsichord. In addition, our youth group will present recitations of poetry composed by female writers through the ages during the performance.
There will be a light tea reception and discussion of women’s civil rights at 4 PM in the fellowship hall before the concert led by CWRU sociology professor Jessica Kelley.
For more information, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Ying at email@example.com.Tags: women, Worship
