Note to You, A; Women Of The Orchestra

01/10/1999

In the not-too-distant past, women weren’t welcome in the symphony orchestra. And when they finally did appear, the were kept to the back rows, so not to be too “distracting.” Times are changing, but women still come up against obstacles in their lives as orchestral musicians. On this program, we’ll hear the stories of orchestral women, and music performed by some remarkable players and conductors who just happen to be female.
