SAN JOSE, CA -- The Choral Project, the critically acclaimed Bay Area vocal
ensemble, is pleased to present their 2nd Annual Women's Composer's Concert,

throughout the ages. The program will feature music of Aleotti, Fanny
Mendelssohn-Hensel, Boulanger, Diemer, and many others including Sarah
Hopkins' hypnotic, international sensation "Past Life Melodies," employing
overtone singing, and the World Premiere of Nancy Bloomer Duessen's "Et in
terra pax," in memory of the victims of September 11. The concerts will be
held on Friday, March 8th at 8:00 pm (International Women's History Day) at
First Congregational Church, 1985 Louis Road, Palo Alto, and Sunday, March
