Spirit & Grace

Throughout history, women have always shaped and changed our culture — and in this program, we’re celebrating three phenomenal women composers. In her spellbinding Third Symphony, Florence Price honors African American musical and cultural heritage. Written to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the “Star-Spangled Banner,” Jessie Montgomery explores the question: what does a musical anthem for 21st century America sound like? Plus, the Boise Phil Master Chorale takes the stage for a rare performance of Lili Boulanger’s hauntingly beautiful Psalm 130.
