Sep 20 2018
WASHINGTON—The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) presents a lineup of acclaimed performers as part of the annual Shenson Chamber Music Concerts. Through these concerts, the museum carries out its mission of recognizing and supporting women in all areas of the arts. Women musicians performing in the museum’s free concert series have been impressing audiences for more than 20 years. The series was named in honor of Drs. Ben and A. Jess Shenson, who were longtime supporters of the museum and lovers of music.
“I am thrilled to continue the momentum of our groundbreaking 20th-anniversary season as we present four new concerts that uphold our mission of celebrating and supporting women in all areas of the arts,” said Artistic Director Gilan Tocco Corn, who has guided the programming of the Shenson Series since its inaugural season. “Since 1998, we have presented more than sixty-five free performances featuring emerging and established women musicians.” Over the years, the series has welcomed the Ahn Trio, Julia Bullock, Sasha Cooke, Sara Daneshpour, Simone Dinnerstein, the Eroica Trio, Ingrid Fliter, Sharon Isbin, Olga Kern, Anne Akiko Meyers, Midori, Mary Millben and Eugenia Zukerman.
