On Sunday, Oct. 1, the Carthage Women’s Ensemble, with Professor Peter Dennee as conductor and Melissa Cardamone as accompanist, performed two concerts as part of the Milwaukee Chapter of the American Guild of Organists’ sponsored event titled “Reformation Sampler: 1517-2017 500th Anniversary.” The ensemble performed at Wauwatosa Avenue United Methodist Church and St. Bernard Parish. At their concert in  St. Bernard Parish, they received a standing ovation, mid-concert, following their performance of “Warrior”, a composition that encourages women to become “fierce warriors” in defense of one another. They will perform this composition and others on the Carthage campus during the Family Weekend Choral Concert at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 15.
