Random Access Music celebrates the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, extending women's suffrage across the U.S. Composer/performer collective, RAM has dedicated its season, "We, the Whole People", to honoring the centenary of the 19th Amendment. Inspired by the women who achieved these freedoms, the season will feature music by female composers. New commissions will be performed from RAM composers and guest composers. RAM's season title is drawn from Susan B. Anthony's speech following her arrest for voting in the 1872 presidential election: "It was...we, the whole people, who formed the union."
