PUBLIQuartet | Night of Terror

So excited to announce the first #PUBLIQAccess World Premiere of the season will be held at the historical Workhouse Arts Center in partnership with Turning Point Suffragist Memorial on Sunday, November 12 in Lorton, Virginia!

Steven Snowden's commission, "Silent Sentinels" for string quartet and electronics, honors the Centennial of the "Night of Terror" when 33 Suffragists called the Silent Sentinels were arrested and brutally beaten at the Occoquan Workhouse (now the Workhouse Arts Center). These women were subsequently tortured and endured horrific treatment as prisoners. It wasn't until 1920 that the 19th Amendment was ratified.

PQ's program "Voices of Change" will provide a snapshot of music in 1917, celebrating the Centennial of Thelonious Monk, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie and the music of Lilli Boulanger.
