Monday Link Round Up: September 3, 2018

10 years of celebrating the vast range of orchestral music by women, and encouraging orchestras to program it! All around us people are suddenly aware of ingrained sexist practices, and questioning their entrenched status. We work to reveal the centuries of music by women, much of it lost to history due to gender bias – and help provide information and resources to make that music available. 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?
