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.
