"Half the Sky" is not nearly enough room for the big, expressive sound of Vox Femina, the city's premier female chorus. Join the group as it completes its latest concert cycle with Half the Sky: Hear Our Voices at Zipper Concert Hall. Inspired by Half the Sky, a powerful book by Pulitzer winners Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, the chorus has put together a stirring program of North American originals, from spirituals to rousing civil rights anthems. A few special pieces will be performed with the young women of Mira Costa High School -- the next generation of female singing talent. Finally, the women of Vox will give "voice" to their own experiences with an original commission: Acclaimed composer Jenni Brandon has set the words of individual chorus members to her moving composition "We Are Home."

One of the best concerts in a long long time. Daniel Hope is an amazing violinist and the caliber of all the faculty and student musicians was the highest. The pre-talk was very informative and the program was compelling. A great experience in every way. Many many thanks to the excellent musicians.
