Lanta Horn Duo

October 4 | 7:30 PM | Russell/Wanlass Performance Hall

This concert celebrates women in traditionally male-dominated spaces. Featuring a world premiere of a new work by Alyssa Weinberg, the concert is presented with help from CAPSA and other women’s advocacy organizations. Ms. Weinberg’s new piece is based on the poem “The House” by Warsan Shire, which describes a person’s experience with intimate partner violence. Because of this difficult topic, the concert is only open to audience members over 15 years of age, and attendance may not be recommended if you are sensitive to hearing about domestic violence, an issue that affects about 25% of women at some point in their lives. Admission is free at the USU concert, but if you feel so moved, we suggest making a donation to CAPSA in lieu of paying for a ticket.
