Celebrate Women's History Month with "All the Write Women" @ The Driehaus Museum


March is Women's History Month, a time to look back at women who left their mark on history. Events in celebration of Women's History Month are popping up all over Chicago. Join the Driehaus Museum this Sunday Saturday to celebrate women and songwriting through the ages.

The Driehaus Museum is celebrating some of the great American women songwriters from the past 100 years with a performance this Saturday, March 9, 2013. "All the Write Women" is Driehaus Museum's own caberet show to salute Women's History Month.

Performing the greats will be three of Chicago's favorite singers- Hilary Ann Feldman, Beckie Menzie, and Marianna Murphy Orland. These three singers will pay homage to the great Dorothy Fields and other great female talent since. Fields' career spanned over fifty years from the 1920's to the 1970's. She wrote more than 400 songs for the Broadway stage and screen- many of which have been come American classics. Her contribution paved the way for future songwriters and singers like the 60's Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon, as well as modern talent.

Purchase tickets prior to the show. Doors will open for the performance at 5:30pm and guests are welcome to peruse the museum collections before the show. Drinks and light fare will be provided. Guests must be 21 and up.
