The Cambridge Female Composers Festival, established this year, aims to promote the study, performance, and creation of music by female composers; the festival runs from January to March 2019. In this Season Launch concert, the music of Lili Boulanger and living British female composers is explored by Sarah MacDonald, the first woman to hold the position of Director of Music at an Oxbridge Chapel, and an orchestra and choir made up of some of the finest musicians at the University. The concert will open with a talk from Professor Katharine Ellis, 1684 Professor of Music, and Fellow of Selwyn College, and culminate in Lili Boulanger’s truly epic setting of Psalm CXXX scored for large orchestra, choir, organ, mezzo-soprano solo (Chloe Allison), and tenor solo (Mark Hounsell).

TICKETS: £10, £8 concessions, £3 students.
Available from Selwyn College Porters' Lodge.
