Here I Am presented by Kantorei, Joel M. Rinsema Artistic Director
A Women’s History Month Celebration

 

Jocelyn Hagen wrote “Here I Am” in commemoration of the 100-year anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment; she chose quotes and poems from women who are authors, activists, and leaders from around the globe and through time. To bring this work even more to life, Hagen selected a cadre of women artists to create portraits of these inspirational women. This combination of words, images, and powerful music creates a remarkable, evocative experience for all who hear it.
