No-one really knows who the first female composer was but women have been creating and singing melodies since the very beginnings of history.
In honor of Women’s History Month, TRAILBLAZERS: Women Forging New Paths will feature more than four centuries of music by female composers, displaying significant contributions and in many cases, the prolific roles women have played within the predominantly male-dominated world of classical music.
Through this program, we hope to continue to help keep these women’s names and their music alive.
