In honor of Women’s History Month in March, the League of Women Voters of Greater Haverhill will hold a free program of music on March 11 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Universalist Unitarian Church, 15 Kenoza Ave.
The program, titled “Influential Women Composers from the 1100s to the 1940s: Repression and Recognition,” will focus on influential women composers of those eras, their stories and their works. Alice Donovan and Sally Heiter will perform piano and voice solos and duets, and will discuss these subjects.
Donovan, owner of Donovan Music Studio, is president of the Merrimack Valley Music Teachers Association and is a member of Music Teachers National Association and the National Piano Teachers Guild. She prepares students for recitals, master classes and American Guild auditions.
Heiter studied classical voice, was a professional chorister and soloist in several churches in Maryland and New Jersey and was music director at the UU Church of Haverhill from 1997 to 2006. She has performed with the New England Conservatory Camerata, the New England Classical Singers and other groups. Heiter and Donovan have been piano duet partners for the last three years. Refreshments will be served after the program. Please enter at the rear entrance of the church on Ashland Street, where parking is available. More information is available by calling 978-374-6253.
