WOMEN OF NOTE
Women of Note is a small informal choral group which has been actively involved in singing at various
community events for the past ten years. With a wide range of ages, musical interests and backgrounds in the
group, each woman brings her own unique contribution, and the repertoire changes like the seasons and the tides.
This year the group has chosen to do fewer public performances in order to concentrate on new and challenging
four part a cappella material. Their commitment to performing at International Women's Day and peace and
environmental events remains strong.
After a processional opening song, Good Friend, the concert entitled A Woman's Life in Song from Cradle to
Crone, will begin with Guten Abend Gut' Nacht, the familiar lullaby by Brahms.
From the cradle we proceed to the carefree childhood days with a medley of nursery rhymes and skipping songs,
followed by the teen years and the joys and heartaches of young love. The Maid on the Shore and Amor Que Me
Cautivas are among the selections. J. David Moore's four part boogie woogie arrangement of Connie Kaldor's
Wanderlust is a song about a working woman and her frustrations.
The importance of friendship, strength and support which women give each other is echoed in Set Her Free by
Ruth Huber and Women Friends by Linda Quinn and the deep, timeless love between two people as they age together
finds tender expression in Rene Clausen's Set Me as a Seal. The programme ends as it began with a lullaby
A delicious lunch will be available after the performance for $5.50 courtesy of The Anglican Caterers.
