Songs of #MeToo — A Prelude of Change is a dynamic performance that features six documentary songs co-written with women who have experienced sexual misconduct and domestic violence. In this unique presentation, the songs are paired with the preludes to Bach’s six Cello Suites.
“As the women represented here find their voices and share their stories through song, the cello finds its voice through Bach’s celebrated preludes,” said Documentary Songwriters, in a news release.
Each piece on the program has been individually recorded by a different artist. Artists include Martha Baldwin and Tanya Ell Woolfrey of The Cleveland Orchestra, cellist Amparo Lacruz of Spain as well as local artists Alisa Amador, Hazel Delehey and Nora Willauer.
“The artists have poured care and creativity into each piece and this concert is sure to be breathtaking,” said the release.
