BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. (March 1, 2012) – Musician Lauren Pelon performs a unique concert, Women in Music: Someone Will Remember Us, tracing the story of women in music and performing music from around the world.
The concert celebrates music written by and for women and will be held 12:20 p.m., Friday, March 16, in the E Building Recital Hall at CCBC Essex, 7201 Rossville Blvd. The program is free and open to the public. No tickets or reservations required. For further information, call 443-840-1726.
Crossing the boundaries of time, distance and culture, Pelon sings and plays ancient and modern instruments – some of which were traditionally played by women, some forbidden to women.
According to Pelon, the program melds her original compositions with her arrangements of music from ancient Greece, medieval Europe and contemporary Africa, America and Estonia.
She will play the lute, lyre, hurdy-gurdy, recorders, gemshorn, pennywhistles, ocarina, Kiowa courting flute, eagle bone flute, cornamuse, krummhorn, schreierpfeife, shawm, rackett, concertina, electric wind instrument and MIDI-pedalboard.
