Female Innovators

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size  
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,  
The stride of my step,  
The curl of my lips.  
I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me
An excerpt from Angelou’s PHENOMENAL WOMAN.


This concert celebrates the innovation that women bring through art.
