American Women Composers
On Saturday, October 19, 2019 at 7:00pm in the East Gallery at the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum, the Chamber Music for the Outer Cape presents American Women Composers, a program designed to share the extraordinary influence of women in music since the late nineteenth century. The program features the music of Amy Beach, generally acknowledged as the first American woman recognized widely by music scholars, and Florence B. Price, the first African American woman to have music performed by a major American symphony. These historical works are juxtaposed with a performance by the singer, songwriter, and composer Pamela Means, an award-winning American musician performing her own music.
The music series, a program of the PMPM, was conceived by a volunteer advisory group led by Dr. Craig Combs of Provincetown, an accomplished pianist who inspired the effort. The Chamber Music for the Outer Cape Volunteer Advisory Group includes Charles Berardesco, Dr. Combs, Dr. William Gannon, Jr., Allan McKinnon, Ken Okin, Charles Roberts and Jeffrey Thurston.
