Through Her Window

Benaroya Hall

Oboe player Mary Lynch VanderKolk. Seattle Symphony

Principal Oboe Mary Lynch VanderKolk leads a program of works that includes a new sonata by Sarah Gibson as well as two other pieces written for VanderKolk as part of Through Her Window, an ongoing commissioning and performance project that brings together some of the most eloquent female-identifying musical voices of our time to expand the canon, share stories and reflect on life in the world today. Inspired by the well-known quote attributed to Claudia Alta Johnson, “Art is a window to the soul,” Through Her Window works to undo the historic silencing of women by raising women’s voices through music.
