Open Gates Project: The Divine Feminine in New York on Friday, November 12, 2021
Friday, November 12, 2021, 1900 - 2030
The Open Gates Project presents its inaugural concert on November 12th at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, featuring an all women of color roster of artists. Named for the almighty creative force that brings all things into being, The Divine Feminine program is a triumphant celebration of womanly influence in the world. This program presents a range of visionary female voices from the early repertoire with that most vaunted of female figures, Mary herself, as its bookends.

From the jubilant medieval setting "Hail Mary, Full of Grace" to Pergolesi's grand masterpiece, the "Stabat Mater", Mary is brought to life in her many nuances: in deepest love and profound grief; in anguish; in hopefulness, in sensuality, and in the foundational joy of creation. Among the featured composers are Chiara Margarita Cozzolani, Barbara Strozzi, Francesca Caccini, and Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz. From sacred to secular and back again, this program honors the strength and grace of these masterful historic composers as presented by living masters of their craft: brilliant women of color, every one.

The Open Gates Project is a concert series dedicated to creating greater access to stages for musicians of color in Early Music. It simultaneously seeks to create greater access to Early Music for underserved communities. We want to see increased diversity on the stage AND in the audience.
