Heels & Wheels concert in Irvine Sept. 17

The women of Third Wheel say, "Anything you can do, I can do better!" – and in high heels. Join us for a program of compositions written by women in a musical celebration Heels & Wheels on Saturday, September 17, at 3 p.m.

Presented in part by a grant from New York Women Composers, this event brings together many kinds of heel-wearing musicians from the East Coast to the West Coast. Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Good Shepherd Chapel at Concordia University in Irvine, the program will feature the best and brightest of today’s living women composers from New York, Los Angeles, and beyond.

Flutist Karin Kantenwein will perform a solo work by prolific writer Faye-Ellen Silverman, and clarinetist Adrienne Geffen will take a turn with a solo piece by Belarus-born Alla Borzova. Joining together with bassoonist Rebecca Rivera to make up Third Wheel, other selections highlight the following composers: often-recorded Binette Lipper, emotionally evocative Rain Worthington, Los Angeles native Jenni Brandon, and handbell expert Catherine McMichael.

Tickets are $10 at the door, and a light reception will follow. Admission is free for all Concordia students. Concordia University is located at 1350 Concordia West in Irvine, Calif. For more information, please visit
