Composers Concordance: Ladies First

Inspired by adventurous women, musicians Milica Paranosic, Keve Wilson, and Lynn Bechtold, of the innovative record label Composers Concordance Records (CCR), initiated the Ladies First concept. More than just a concert, this inaugural event will acknowledge women in diverse fields.

This innovative chamber music concert will present music by today's leading composers together with music of past times and remote places. Performed by the finest of New York's chamber musicians, this unique, creative, and courageous production features the ladies of CCR. The evening will focus on the aesthetics of the Bohemian style, both in its traditional historical sense and in its denotation of the Bohemian style today.

The women of Ladies First are embracing the age they live in, in which the ladies are allowed, encouraged, and inspired to take the lead in any and all areas of life and arts, while losing nothing of their grace, charm, and magnetism-once their only allowed assets.

At the event, a special woman will be awarded the first Ladies First award, created by NYC artist Cecilia Mandrile.
