Then at the 8pm showcase, after 12 hours of working and playing together, each duo presents a mind-tinglingly fresh live original work around the theme of Fierce Women Thriving.

Concert

Saturday, March 10th at 8:00 PM in the Tufts Theater

A New Athena Project Event

Crown your Weekend of Music with the soul-expanding songcraft of Megan Burtt and Nina De Freitas at our Festival Concert.

Megan Burtt was Westword Music Awards’ 2015 Best Singer/Songwriter, and has toured internationally both as a headline artist, and as support for great acts like Gregory Alan Isakov, Mark Cohen, and Leanne Rimes. In 2015 she was thrilled to be invited to collaborate with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra as a featured artist.

Born in Brazil to musician parents, Nina de Freitas wrote her first song at age five and hasn’t stopped since. Nina has collaborated with many deeply talented artists, including Slow Magic and her accomplished father, Academy Award nominee Carlinhos Brown. The luxurious melodies and textures of her recently released debut EP, Spinning Towards The Edge, perfectly showcase Nina’s velvet voice, which blankets you in yearning and warmth.

Sign language interpreting for this event is provided by FLOW Performance Sign Language Interpreters.
