This year's program, INSPIRING WOMEN, offers a collection of works written by women composers along with those inspired by great women. The theme pays tribute to composers throughout history whose works are seldom heard but merit awareness and recognition, along with repertoire already well loved by audiences.

Select performances will include featured artists  Gabriela Lena Frank (Composer, Pianist, Sphinx Medal of Excellence recipient) and Hannah White (Violinist, Sphinx Competition Junior Division 1st Place Laureate).
