The School of the Arts is proud to feature Women on the Verge as a free lunchtime concert event! Part of the Concerts at McMaster 2019-2020 season, Women on the Verge was formed in 2016 by American soprano Emily Martin, Canadian soprano Elizabeth McDonald and Canadian pianist Kathryn Tremills. The trio is connected by the performers’ mutual desire to explore the common thread of women’s lives through the millennia, including their strengths, struggles, and collective experiences.
