BRODHEAD - The Brodhead Memorial Public Library will offer a "Women in Music: Someone will Remember Us" program at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1 at the library, 1207 25th St., Brodhead.

The program, which is free and open to the public, will feature Lauren Pelon tracing the story of women in music and performing music from around the world. Pelon sings and plays about 25 ancient and modern instruments, some of which were traditionally played by women, some forbidden to women.

Pelon studied the history of music and instrumentation both in America and overseas and has performed throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and China.

The "Women in Music" program melds Pelon's original compositions with her arrangements of music from Ancient Greece, medieval Europe, and contemporary Africa, America and Estonia.

"Women in Music: Someone Will Remember Us" is funded in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Council with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the State of Wisconsin.
