In this uniquely original online storytelling concert, we follow a fictional narrative that takes us back to the 1870s, when Susan B. Anthony traveled to Western Colorado to give one of her now legendary speeches in support of the women’s suffrage movement, ultimately leading Colorado to become one of the first states to grant suffrage to women and eventually help lead the charge toward the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920.

In a fictional series of letters interspersed with enthralling historical revelations, surviving photography, and art songs by female composers, we follow Susan’s story from a personal point of view as our voices join those of her contemporaries to bring you this original centennial celebration of women’s suffrage in the US.

You can check it out for FREE thanks to a generous grant from the Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture.
