Repertoire of The Women’s Philharmonic

This is a first attempt to list the repertoire of The Women’s Philharmonic, based on an incomplete collection of programs.  We welcome additional input (email:  [email protected]), and we would also like to incorporate more information about how to obtain the music.  For many of the late 20th century works on this list, it would be necessary to contact the composers or their estates.  We offer this list (mostly historical) that does include information on how to obtain the music.
