Unheard: Romantic and Rebellious Women Composers 

Following the success of our first edition salon lecture-recital "Unheard: A History of Women Composers," we present the second of our series exploring the gorgeous chamber music of women composers from the likes of Hildegard von Bingen to our very own Boston Conservatory at Berklee composers Laura Nevitt and Mason Bynes.

Join us as we traverse through the sights and sounds of lesser known composers in history as well as contemporary ones, learn about their romantic and rebellious stories and indulge in the beautiful music sung and played by the harp, flute, strings and marimba. You’ll be in for a treat!

This group is pitch perfect! UNT’s co-ed, contemporary A Capella group, the UNT Green Tones, was founded in 2008 and is currently getting ready to compete at The National A Cappella Convention in April. In February they were nominated for their very first Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award (CARA) for “No Place Like Home”. We’re #UNTproud of all the Green Tones are accomplishing!
