Northwest Public Radio Celebrates Women’s History Month in Classical Music

“How do you celebrate Women’s History Month in classical music, when the genre’s history names few women composers? At NWPR over the past year, one answer has been: find what music you can, and play it. Inspired by Women’s History Month 2015, we took on a challenge to program at least one piece by a woman composer each day.  Yes, it’s a token, but this month, we trade in those tokens for a reward.”

Celebrated today are composers AMY BEACH (United States), Cecile Chaminade (France) and Clara Wieck Schumann (Germany).

The NWPR women composer information and media may be found here.
