RAM Concerts : We, the Whole People
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Random Access Music (RAM), has dedicated its 2020 season, entitled "We, the Whole People" to honoring the centenary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, extending women's suffrage throughout the United States. Inspired by the pioneering women who achieved these freedoms, the season will feature music by female composers of the past 100 years.
RAM’s season title is drawn from Susan B. Anthony's speech following her arrest for voting in the 1872 presidential election: "It was we, the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we, the male citizens; but we, the whole people, who formed the Union."
