Featuring Singers from Brighton University
Female composers have fought for years against the perception that writing music is a man's game.
This misperception will be challenged at a concert on 4 November 2011, St James Piccadilly, London, to celebrate 100 years since the formation of the Society of Women Musicians.
The concert will include pieces written by women in the early and mid twentieth century against a background of suffrage, feminist campaigning and social change. These pieces will be juxtaposed with specially commissioned responses from women composing today.
