This course explores the richly varied ways women have contributed to music-making. Live, interactive sessions through Zoom will include presentations, interviews with guest musicians and scholars, Q&A and discussion, and suggested playlists and literature for those whose curiosity has been piqued. Together with stories of women involved in Western classical music, this course will weave stories of women making traditional music, and women writing new music in dialogue with music of the past, including contemporary composers Robyn Jacob, Jessica McMann, Afarin Mansouri, Emily Doolittle, Tawnie Olsen, and Cris Derksen.
The course will run from April 4 to May 9, 2023, with two sessions every Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Each session is approximately 1.5 hours in length. The price is $90 for the full course of six sessions and will only be available to watch for three months.
