Music Talks: Women Composers' Uphill Battle to the 21st Century


What part have women played in the creation of humanity’s musical history besides the ubiquitous singing lullabies? What might women have added to the tapestry of world music if their compositions had not been stifled or attributed to a man? How much of the music we’ve heard all our lives might actually have been written by the famous composer’s wife? Who are the women writing for stage and film today? Why have women, despite all odds, continued to pour their souls into their music? Let’s explore the history and mystery of woman’s need to create, to sing her soul, and to imagine through sound.

Presented by Cynthia Morrow-Hattal.
