A selection of music for voice, piano, and strings commemorates the club’s first concert on 17 September 1942. We focus on Baroque music in the first half, including a 17th century woman composer, Barbara Strozzi, while the second half begins with a setting of Michael Coady’s poem The Great Embrace by our Artistic Advisor, Marian Ingoldsby, which was commissioned for this occasion. 75th Birthday Concert / Elizabeth Downey Memorial Concert
