A celebration of diversity through the music of female composers who have historically been under-represented and under-performed. This concert features works from the 1800’s through to the modern era by women of diverse cultural backgrounds. Through this concert, the Melbourne Lawyers’ Orchestra (Lawchestra) and the Habeas Chorus draw a connection with the ongoing work being done, and that must continue to be done, to promote diversity in the legal industry. The performance will be conducted by Robert Dora and Ed Chan.
