Music by Janet Jennings for voices, violin, marimba, piano and percussion.
A free concert of new music/songs composed by internationally-recognised, Hamilton-based composer Janet Jennings. Janet has set to music, using an interesting range of instruments played by local female musicians, words of NZ women - both Maori and non-Maori - that describe women's aspirations for equality and challenges to achieving this. It features voice, marimba, piano, violin and percussion.
The concert will be recorded by SOUNZ as part of the Resound project, and following the public concert, the musicians will spend two days with international recording label, Atoll Records, making a top quality recording for national and international distribution.
