About this event

The Inspiring Women Concert is part of Guildford Cathedral’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations and to celebrate International Women's Day weekend.

The concert will also include a choir made up of the girl choristers from Guildford Cathedral singing works by Cecilia McDowall and Imogen Holst. There will be an instrumental interlude with Harriet Mackenzie, two London conservatoire and a professional ‘cellist performing "Riff for Strings and Snare" by Hennessey Brown Music composer Dominique Le Gendre. Both Dominique and Cecilia will be present at the event and will be speaking about their works before the y are performed.
