      To mark this week’s International Women’s Day (March 8), Vetta Chamber Music is saluting a bunch of talented females.

      Thursday and Friday (March 9 and 10), at West Point Grey United Church, In Praise of Women, features Vetta’s first-ever composer in residence, Eileen Padgett, as host. She’ll debut her new Resilience: In Praise of Women, while another local composer, Dorothy Chang, reworks her Bagatelles. Two other female composers, Nicola Resanovic and Fernande DeCruck, round out the program, ably played by—you guessed it—some more ambassadors from our music scene’s wealth of women: Jane Hayes on piano, Joan Blackman on violin, and Julia Nolan on saxophone.
