center for music and #collaborative arts
music is not a privilege. it's a necessity.
With the intention of women empowering other women through art, this innovative concert series is a celebration of their local and global accomplishments.
Lynn Bechtold, Milica Paranosic and Keve Wilson—the founders of Ladies First—are three women at the cutting edge of NYC’s contemporary music scene, and they are forging a new path in this creative concept of concert production.
Ladies First - We’re all Immigrants is funded in part with a grant from New York Women Composers
The fourth annual Ladies First production, entitled Ladies First – We’re All Immigrants was a huge success. We performed in front of the sold-out Marc A. Scorca Hall of Opera America.
As with our previous events, this multi-faceted event, celebrated women and their achievements across disciplines in a festive event, containing a reception, award ceremony, concert and an after-party.
