Program Notes

Our Famous Five is a celebration of five women (Emily Murphy, Irene Parlby, Henrietta Muir Edwards, Louise McKinney, and Nellie McClung) whose political activism included the fight for women to be able to vote, to change laws pertaining to women and children, and finally, in the "Persons Case", to be declared "persons" under Canadian law.

This commemorative work for these women in Alberta, Canada, was commissioned by the Rocky Mountain Concert Band and premiered December 11, 2010.
