The Canales Project and the University of Wolverhampton present a musical celebration of extraordinary women, this project honours achievements and courageous life choices of distinguished women leaders through new songs inspired by their words.
Since its inception in 2017, Hear Her Song has commissioned twenty-one songs from leading songwriters and composers in the United States and abroad, in collaboration with award-winning, published poet/lyricist Jacqueline Suskin and with music supervision by Kurt Crowley (current music director of Hamilton on Broadway). The project continues in the 2018-19 season, expanding to the United Kingdom. Tonight, we honour ten remarkable women through the music of ten hugely talented British female composers including Sara Colman and Gwyneth Herbert.
The University of Wolverhampton is proud to co-sponsor this event with The Canales Project, a non-profit organization led by Carla Canales which gives voice to issues of identity and culture through music.
