Her Story: Music by Women — Amy Beach, Gabriela Lena Frank, Nicky Sohn

Kinetic Ensemble celebrates Women’s History Month with a program of music by all female composers, including pioneering American composer Amy Beach and the award-winning Gabriela Lena Frank. At the program’s center is the world premiere of “Home,” a new multidisciplinary concerto for violin, string orchestra, and three dancers, spearheaded by a team of three female artists: Nicky Sohn(composer), Kayla Collymore (choreographer), and Mary Grace Johnson (violinist). “Home” is inspired by clients of the Women’s Home Houston, a rehabilitation and support center for women overcoming addiction; each movement focuses on an individual from the Center and her story, as a way to give voice to these women and raise awareness for the important work of the Women’s Home.
