The Goddess in Every Woman - In honor of International Women’s Day, this concert pairs compositions by women with works in the permanent collection to explore expressions of female power and divinity. The music includes two depictions of goddesses, while the accompanying art reaches from the ancient bust of the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet to Kehinde Wiley’s 2012 painting Judith and Holofernes.
Docent-led tours will be available at 1:45 pm before each concert in the series. The tours, tailored to music lovers, link art in the Museum’s collection to that day's chamber music performance. Reservations must be made at least one week in advance by contacting Christine Molesky, (919) 664-6785. Tours are free; paid admission to ticketed exhibitions is required.
Nonmembers $14 (Season tickets $70); Members/Seniors $12 (Season tickets $60); Youth/Students $10 (Season tickets $60)
