CYT North Idaho will present a concert of Disney and other fairy tale favorites by the Valkyrie Ensemble at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

The Valkyrie Ensemble is a nonprofit with the mission to promote and empower women in and through music.

Founded in 2019, by longtime Post Falls resident and CYT alumni Karen Hunt, Valkyrie was launched from Chicago in 2020.

The Valkyrie Ensemble has been hard at work creating digital content, such as the ongoing series "Suffragette Summer" and Musical Telegram delivery service, and developing and producing original works such as "The Dead Diva Society Cabaret" and an all-female edition of Mozart’s "The Magic Flute," with a new English libretto.

As part of its outreach efforts, the Valkyrie Ensemble is producing Zoom concerts with community partners, serenading retirees with classic Broadway tunes at the Center on Halstead in Chicago and sharing Disney and other fairy tale magic with theater students at CYT North Idaho.
