Seventeenth century Venetian rebel composer/singer Barbara Strozzi (1619-1677) challenged the male-dominated status quo of morality, performance style, and musical language. Her songs range from heart-on-sleeve laments to raging and sexually-charged cantatas to intimately devotional sacred works. In celebration of the 400th anniversary of her birth, student singers and instrumentalists, led by Dr. Vivian Montgomery with guest instructor soprano Dr. Janet Youngdahl, present a dramatic and varied collage of her works alongside recitation and visual representation about her life, her mind, her voice, and her challenges.
