"What on earth is a music ensemble made up of a bassoonist, an oboist, a pianist, a singer, and a percussionist? Pleasure. That's what it is; Pleasure."

Madera Vox voice, Kelly Ellenwood will be premiering a new song by composer Debra Kaye at the dedication of an historical marker honoring American journalist and women's rights advocate Margaret Fuller (1810 - 1850) on May 21, 2016 in Beacon, NY. The piece, "Freedom and Truth" written for Soprano and Violin was commissioned by BeaconArts for the event in collaboration with the City of Beacon. The text was taken from a poem written by Fuller, who wrote her groundbreaking women's rights book Woman in the Nineteenth Century while staying in the then Fishkill Landing Village area of Beacon. Violinist Kathleen Bosman will also be performing.
