QU POLIS: Female Composers Through the Ages; Women Breaking Ground in the Field of Composition
September 20, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
What do Hildegard Von Bingen, Barbara Strozzi, Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn, and Amy Beach have in common? They were all composers in a time when women were not accepted even as music performers, let alone composers. They paved the way for female composers today, and their music has stood the test of time as true musical landmarks. In this lecture, learn about their lives, what drove them to compose, and discover some of their beautiful works. $4 admission
