Choral Showcase honors Women's History this month, beginning with noted English composer and staunch advocate for women's suffrage, Dame Ethel Smyth. We'll hear her Mass in D major from 1891, on this week's program. Later this month (Sunday, March 22), the Cathedral Choral Society honors the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment with a concert featuring works from women composers - including highlights from Smyth's Mass in D.
