Hear Women of the Baroque
caichicago.org, October 9 through October 11.
This year’s Collaborative Works Festival in Chicago focuses on a whole category of compositional talent that for centuries institutions didn’t nurture and history barely bothered to note: women. In the first of three concerts in October, soprano Amanda Majeski, tenor Nicholas Phan, and bass Anthony Reed sing songs by Baroque composers like Francesca Caccini and Barbara Strozzi.
