Women continue to stand on the shoulders of giants who have come before them. This month, which celebrates women's history, is a perfect time to remember those feats and accomplishments.
That's why jazz vocalist Linda Ciofalo put together an ensemble of female musicians to perform Sunday at the Manhasset Public Library.
"I'm hoping that they'll [listeners will] realize that there are some very talented women out there and realize how much of an impact they had on the music," Ciofalo says.
The 90-minute performance - dubbed "That's What She Said: A Tribute to Women Composers" - highlights music or lyrics written or sung by women since the 1930s. It features Ciofalo, pianist Helen Sung, bassist Mary Ann McSweeney, drummer Sylvia Cuenca and saxophonist and flutist Laura Dreyer.
Listeners can expect to hear songs by Carole King, Dorothy Fields, Abbey Lincoln, Stevie Nicks, Carolyn Leigh, Dory Previn and others.
WHEN/WHERE 3 p.m. Sunday at Manhasset Public Library, 30 Onderdonk Ave., Manhasset.
