The fire within is the creative impulse. It is the unchosen directive that burns inside. The C21 Women’s Ensemble presents songs that fuel the imagination with flames and energy.  

We hope to inspire the same creative spark that allowed someone like Coretta Scott King to bear the weight of a legacy with grace and integrity. ("I’ll Go Alone," Alexander) and that enabled Hildegard of Bingen, a 12th century mystic to illuminate the spiritual ("O frondens virga," Kesselman), as well as music from the film Portrait of a Lady on Fire ("La Jeune Fille en Feu," Simonini) and much more to help us a find a way through the darkness and into the light.

Join us at 4:00 p.m. on June 5th at The Kehrein Center for the Performing Arts.  Pre-concert discussion begins at 3.
