Lincoln Center White Light Festival

Lincoln Center announced its 2017 White Light Festival about ten days ago. As usual, there's some great stuff: cross-cultural music and dance, John Eliot Gardiner leading the three surviving Monteverdi operas, and many great concerts.

Over the course of a number of programs, musical settings of all of the Biblical psalms will be performed. It's a great concept, mixing old and new settings. Alas, I'm shocked at the tiny number of works composed by women that will be performed. What an opportunity missed; read the press release here.
