“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).
