Six women from across the U.S. have co-written songs from their stories of sexual misconduct and domestic violence. In this program, these songs are performed by up-and-coming artists.

“Songs of #MeToo—A Prelude of Change” pairs these songs with the preludes to Bach’s Cello Suites. As the women represented here find their voices through song, the cello finds its voice through Bach’s preludes. This program is a journey of discovery and becoming.
