This 45-minute illustrated lecture will focus on the phenomenon of female singers and composers in 17th century Italy. During this time, up to 15 percent of the female population lived in convents: these venues provided many women with unparalleled creative opportunities, and their performances were often avidly attended by the public. Presented by Dr. Craig Monson of Washington University in St. Louis, this free presentation precedes the 8PM ArtsLIVE concert. No RSVP required.
