Taking centre stage in the concert are four women; four heroines who stood up for what they believed, using their strength and courage. Three of them are flesh and blood, and the fourth is the sweet girl Mimi, the main character in one of Puccini’s most popular operas, La Bohème.

Program

The first two works pay homage to two eminent figures in the fight for minority rights: North American Rosa Parks, who in the 1950s was the first African American woman to refuse to give up her seat to a white man, and Salvadoran human rights lawyer and activist Marianella García Villas, assassinated for her human rights work in the 1980s. The third work, written by French composer Ida Gotkovsky, one of the most prominent composers of the 20th century, is pure energy and evokes the power of fire as a cleansing element in one of the most spectacular scores ever written for the concert band. And, finally, the Symphonic Suite from La Bohème, a fragment of Puccini's opera in which the dying Mimi appears on stage and performs a magnificent aria.
