BELLA MUSICA: A Concert of Women Composers

Georgia Composers featured on this concert: Woo-young Choi, Marguerite Clayton, Nicole Randall and Tracy Wynn

Agnes Scott College and the Georgia Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts are joining forces to co-sponsor a concert of women composers on Sunday 6 April 2008 at 3 pm in Maclean Auditorium at Agnes Scott College in metro Atlanta. The free concert honors Ruth McDonald, Professor Emerita of Georgia State University for her pioneering work in Georgia in the field of women in music. Many of you know about the festivals/conferences of women in music that she organized at Georgia State over the past years.

The concert is primarily contemporary works, including some world premieres. The performers are largely music faculty affiliated with Agnes Scott College, in addition to a former piano student of Ruth McDonald's, Dr. You-ju Lee.

The concert is free, but requires a ticket due to limited seating. They may be reserved by calling 404-471-6430.
