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.
We are still fundraising to ensure this project can succeed and that the professional musicians involved can be paid fairly. We would be very appreciative of anyone willing to ‘pay-it-forward’ and donate in lieu of paid tickets (tickets are free as we wish to remove any barriers to access to the concert). If you would like to donate you can do so at boosted.org.nz – search for Voices of Women to find our project.
This performance and project is presented in collaboration with the University of Waikato Music Department.
