The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library will celebrate SWAN Day (Support Women Artists Now Day), a new international holiday that celebrates women artists, with a full day of San Diego’s women musicians. The day will include classical musicians to jazz greats that all live and work here in San Diego. A suggested donation of $5 will go directly to the artists. Participating performers will include the Sue Palmer Quintet, a boogie woogie jazz group, the Golliards, an early music ensemble, Coral MacFarland Thuet, the Annarocelle Piano Quartet, and musicians from the San Diego Symphony and San Diego Chamber Orchestra. In addition, Mexican and American women poets will read poetry accompanied by music.
