The program includes music by two composers of Les Six, Francis Poulenc and Germaine Tailleferre, along with music by Erwin Schulhoff and Heitor Villa-Lobos.  Les Six was a loose collection of composers from early 20th-Century France, whose influence was felt far and wide, and is still felt today.

At The Sophia Way, the goal is to make homelessness rare, brief and one-time event for the women experiencing it. The women who come to the shelter are in survival mode. The shelters offer them a warm, safe space to take a shower, rest and sleep, and nourishing food to give them strength. Sophia Way case managers focus on their overall wellbeing -– physical, mental, and financial. Their aim is to move the women into a stable and secure environment – their own home. https://sophiaway.org
