Symphonic Benefit for the Women's Cancer Resource Center

The Community Women's Orchestra will perform a program to benefit the Women's Cancer Resource Center next Sunday. Two fine organizations, and what is this Conductor-for-a-Day business? I should apply (or bid on it, if it's that kind of thing).

Remember, this is probably the only chance you will get this year to hear a work by Peggy Glanville-Hicks, the excellent Australian composer, in the Bay Area:
