ACWC presents: A Spirit Indomitable

The ACWC proudly presented a concert of the music of Canadian women, in a concert celebrating the anniversary of the passing of the bill granting B.C. women the right to vote.  The right to vote gave women a political voice, which this concert celebrated with women’s musical and creative voices with music dating as far back as 300 years as well as the present.

It featured the Emily Carr String Quartet, the women’s choir Ensemble Laude and introduces soprano Elizabeth Gerow, with works by Dorothy Chang, Jocelyn Morlock, Sylvia Rickard, Carol Ann Weaver, Kim Baryluk, Georgina Craig, Eleanor Daley, Sarah Quartel, and the music of an anonymous Ursuline nun.

Elizabeth Gerow  sang art songs by local composer Elinor Dunsmuir (1887-1938), much of which has been overlooked for the past century.  She was the granddaughter of Victoria’s coal baron, Robert Dunsmuir, and lived a colourful life.

The concert was held on April 7th, 2017, at the First Church of Christ Scientist, Victoria, at 7:30 p.m.  There was also a pre-concert talk at 7:00 p.m. discussing the road to suffrage, and some more information on Elinor Dunsmuir.
