As Jane Ring Frank, artistic director of the Concord Women’s Chorus, sees it, a women’s chorus shouldn’t only connote women singing. It should also mean music written by and specifically for women.

And fortunately, scouring music libraries for examples is a challenge that Frank has long embraced.

On Saturday afternoon, the Concord Women’s Chorus presents its spring concert, “For a Dream’s Sake: Giving Women Voice.”

The program showcases “Les Sirènes,” by Lili Boulanger, who in 1913 was the first woman to win the Prix de Rome, as well as music by contemporary composers Abbie Betinis, Libby Larsen, Eleanor Daley, Beth Denisch, and Ruth Watson Henderson.
