International Women’s Day Concert

March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$12 – $15

The Lethbridge Community Gold Band celebrates International Women’s Day with a concert showcasing local, regional and national talent from the wind band tradition. The performance will include guests Dr. Gillian MacKay, Cait Nishimura and LCI Gold Symphonic Band. Joining Dr. MacKay and Ms. Nishimura on the podium are local women conductors Tanya Arnold, Karly Lewis and Karen van de Vendel. The performance takes place on Saturday, March 7, 2020 at 7:00pm at College Drive Community Church. Tickets are available February 1, 2020 online at lcbs.ca, at Casa and at the door.

Celebrating the role women play in the wind band world, the entire concert will feature works by women composers, many of whom are Canadian. Women represent a fraction of composers in the classical music world, and more specifically, a small percentage in the wind band tradition. While there is recent movement and traction among band directors in North America to program women composers, very little work is performed. This concert intends to shine a light on the role women play in wind band music through composition and conducting.
