The Women Composers Festival of Hartford has, for the last sixteen years, provided an educational and entertaining platform for the promotion of women’s music. Recognized as a champion of women’s music by institutions such as Meet the Composer, the International Alliance for Women in Music, and the Women’s Education and Leadership Fund, the festival’s goals include informing audiences through performances of music that has been and still is being written by women in an effort to broaden people’s understanding of musical literature and women’s contributions to this field.
The music marathon, held at Charter Oak Cultural Center, is held up in opposition to the frequent practice by mainstream venues and performers to present entire seasons devoid of music composed by women because of the purported difficulty of finding quality music by women. A symbolic day of programming suggests that these venues could, if they chose, program entire seasons of high-quality works by women. Performances were selected from a competitive call garnering applicants from across the globe. The marathon features more than 25 performers and 30 composers representing a variety of styles, eras, genres, and ensembles.
I will be performing solo and with flutist Michelle Stockman in the Music Marathon in the 11am-12pm hour.
