Music written by women has all too often been neglected and overlooked. In “UnSung Heroes,” it takes its well-deserved place at center stage. Featuring the genius of creators such as Hildegard von Bingen, Lili Boulanger, Gabriela Lena Frank, Alice Parker, and Rosephanye Powell, and including a world premiere by Seattle composer and conductor Karen P. Thomas.
