  1. "Enlarged Housekeeping”: Stories and Songs from Vermont Women

    March 21, 2019, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM @ Vermont History Museum

    Singer and researcher Linda Radtke, joined by pianist Arthur Zorn, explores the contributions of Vermont women to the traditions of parlor songs, women’s club music contests, and social reform efforts. Oceana Judah, Diane Martin, Edwina Flint, and Helen Hartness Flanders represent the richness and invention of the female composers included in the sheet music collection of the Vermont Historical Society. Abolition, child welfare, temperance, the patriotism of war heroes, and the concerns of those left at home during times of war captured the hearts of these women who sometimes disguised their gender for publication. Though they were often published in the local print shop, they have sometimes been ignored by musicologists since.

There will be an opening reception on Thursday March 7th from 5:00-7:00pm. Demo Day – Saturday - March 23rd – 1-3pm. Artists will talk about their work and share textile techniques from their work.
