Women’s Philharmonic Advocacy is a non-profit organization dedicated to “leveling the playing field” for women in classical music, especially composers. Recent decades have uncovered and produced many great works by women, but most of this music has yet to reach mainstream classical audiences.  It’s time to change that habit of exclusion and bring this wonderful music into the mainstream. We still sometimes hear the question “Why have there been no great women composers?” The Women’s Philharmonic (a professional orchestra from 1981-2004) proved that was the wrong question to ask—instead the question is   Why are orchestras not performing more works by women?  Why are audiences not allowed to hear them?
