A Celebration of Women Composers • Spring 2021
Watch Now

One of our dream projects has always been presenting and performing a programme that exclusively features female composers. History has rarely paid attention to compositions written by women. It is only recently that women’s contributions to contemporary music are leading the way in modern aesthetics; their artistic narratives are being acknowledged. The programme we designed strives to promote the artistic perspectives of women of many ethnic backgrounds.
