The Maud Powell Project | May 16
Minnie “Maud” Powell was America’s first internationally known violinist, but her legacy extends far beyond the beauty of her playing: long before it was the norm, she greeted women and black composers. Inspired by Powell’s virtuosity and advocacy, contemporary violinist Megan Healy commissioned five renowned female composers to write a number of lofty new pieces in Powell’s honor. She plays them flash mob style on Promenade Terrace. Promenade Drive North, Westminster; 4.30pm-5.30pm; Register for a free ticket Here
