EUREKA AT BPL
A musical and educational initiative to empower female voices in the arts through performance and interactive workshops with young audiences.
Eureka is teaming up with the boston public library (bpl) to create a series of concerts at six branches of the bpl aimed at empowering female voices in the arts through performance and interactive workshops with young audiences.
Each event will consist of two parts.
The first half will feature chamber performances of works by women composers and brief reflections by Eureka musicians on said composers’ social and musical significance.
During the second half, the musicians will perform simplified transcriptions of contemporary pop hits and familiar songs, again by women artists, and teach young volunteers from the audience to play, sing, drum, or clap along with them. Eureka musicians will have a supply of instruments on loan from our partner organization, the Musary, to facilitate the latter half of the event.
We envision holding six such performance and workshop events throughout the fall of 2018, each at one of the following BPL branches:
