Whistling Hens was founded by soprano Jennifer Piazza-Pick and clarinetist Natalie Groom to perform and commission music by women composers and create a financially and artistically equitable future for women in music. The duo hatched at the centennial of a quote by a male music critic who said of Lili Boulanger in 1918, "women composers are at best whistling hens.” Since its founding, Whistling Hens has commissioned twelve works, seven transcriptions, and a women composer coloring book, as well as given fifteen premieres. Featuring several works from their debut album, Reacting to the Landscape, the program will include composers Jennifer Stevenson, Kimberly Osberg, and Victoria Bond.

Lunch is available for members after the concert
