In honor of Mother's Day, we present music by two wonderful French women composers! Germaine Tailleferre's light and breezy Sonate Champêtre draws on melodies from one of her own comic operas, and Louise Farrenc's virtuosic and rich Trio for violin, cello, and piano goes right to the heart of 19th century Romanticism. "Song of the Lark" blogger Emily Hogstad joins Susan Billmeyer on stage during intermission and will talk about challenges faced by women composers. 

TMO_2015_BugThis concert features highly respected painters Louise Gillis and Lois Rhomberg, who studio in Northeast Minneapolis. Both painters have created large scale works for display on stage during the performance. Louise Gillis took inspiration from Seurat's "A Sunday Afternoon at the Island of Grande Jatte," and inserts a number of references to music and composers, and Lois Rhomberg was influenced by Eugene Atget's documentary photos of turn-of-the-last-century Paris and expands on ideas from her own set designs from Opera Southwest's recent La Boheme (Albuquerque, NM).
