Piano Marathon

Sarah Cahill, hailed as “a sterling pianist and an intrepid illuminator of the classical avant-garde” by The New York Times and “a brilliant and charismatic advocate for modern and contemporary composers” by Time Out New York, has commissioned and premiered over seventy compositions for solo piano. “The Future is Female” Piano Marathon centers on the piano literature featuring more than 70 compositions by women around the globe, from the Baroque to the present day, including new commissioned works. This four-hour marathon performance allows audience members to sit and listen for any length of time, with the ability to come and go, as well as the ability to walk around the space.
