One of the concerts that I perform consists of improvised com-positions whose nature and subject material reflects experiences of women. For example, one composition is entitled Housework and reflects the frustration, fatigue & relentlessness of this daily task; another composition is entitled Women in War and describes the courage & and valor of women against a background of horror; another composition entitled Swampland Serenade is inspired by the world of nature to which I feel deeply connected & which provides me with spiritual solace & musical ideas; & Hildegard is dedicated to the first known women composer in the Western world & draws on the musical style prevalent in her day.
