'Phenomenally Wovon'

MUSE, Cincinnati’s Women’s Choir, presents its 33rd-annual spring concert, Phenomenally Woven, featuring two world premieres — “Phenomenally,” a commission by acclaimed composer/conductor/performer Dr. Rosephanye Powell based on a poem by Maya Angelou, and “Power Lines” by Kala Pierson, the first recipient of a commission prize named for MUSE’s founder Dr. Catherine Roma. Artistic director Rhonda Juliano leads the award-winning and internationally ranked choir in a program that includes works by Dianne Reeves, Elizabeth Gilbert, Holly Near and Imogen Heap. This may be your only opportunity to hear “Phenomenally” — the Angelou estate has limited the number of performances.


7 p.m. Saturday; 3 p.m. Sunday. $20 general; $17 student/seniors; $10 child. Walnut Hills High School auditorium, 3250 Victory Parkway, Evanston, musechoir.org
