Women Musicians Network 23rd annual concert, Thursday, Nov. 7th Berklee Performance Center

Women Musicians Network  
23rd annual concert, Thursday, Nov. 7th 
Berklee Performance Center 

Kirk Etherton 

I think this is Boston's best annual concert: completely different every year, extremely diverse and very high quality. Often, I run into people who share my opinion.  

I met a very interesting Berklee student a few years ago (she was older, having taught classical piano at a university in Japan before discovering jazz, and eventually getting a full scholarship to Berklee). 

This woman knew music--travelled widely, had her own radio show, etc.--and she insisted, "This is the best annual concert anywhere! For me, missing this show would be musical tragedy." 

As always, it's at the B.P.C. and focuses on Berklee women students and their bands from around the world, plus special guests. 

There are 10 (yes, ten) original acts again this year, ranging from Cuban Jazz and Flamenco, to Korean Folk, R&B, and Poetry set to music and dance. 

The WMM concert (and its co-founder / leader / host, Lucy Holstedthas gotten special commendations from the Cambridge Mayor's Office and the Mass. House of Representatives, and been featured on WGBH's "Eric in the Evening."  

I hope to see you there.
