October 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Whitney Bradshaw’s Outcry explores women’s reactions to societal pressure by giving them a voice, a chance to discover their scream. This, and the fact that Bradshaw started the Outcry project on the day of the Women’s March last year, inspired us at 5th Wave Collective and Modern Reeds to speak up too. Her scream sessions bring together groups of women who don’t know each other and give them the opportunity to open up in a safe environment. This concert will give a voice through music, to women everywhere.
This event is best experienced live but if you don’t live in Chicago then it will be live-streamed!
Our ensembles consist of musicians of all genders, uniting anyone who wants to support equality and progress.
5th Wave Collective is a Chicago-based classical music ensemble dedicated to the performance and promotion of music by female composers. Bringing together a diverse group of musicians, we advance our mission by including performers of all genders who support our cause. We seek to celebrate the legacy of female composers before us, and create a platform for those to come.
Modern Reeds explores unlimited genres in new music through the promotion of contemporary repertoire for woodwinds. Striving to engage musicians and audience alike in an atmosphere of inclusivity, the ensemble values interdisciplinary engagement with local artists and composers to promote collaborative relationships in the new music community.
