From a letter written by Abigail Adams to the words of Sojourner Truth, Julia Wolfe’s “Her Story” — part of the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s current festival — is a personal and emotional response to the ongoing quest for equal rights for women.

Bostonians can catch the concert tonight at 7:30 p.m., tomorrow at 1:30 p.m., and Saturday at 8 p.m., and make plans to attend a free panel discussion featuring Dr. Jane Kamensky of Harvard University, Dr. Robyn C. Spencer-Antoine of Lehman College, and Julia Wolfe herself. (You read that right: a living composer.)

Hear the panelists discuss the history and process of building “Her Story” on Saturday (March 18) at 5:30 p.m.*
