In the first full calendar year of Boulanger Initiative, we've been greeted with more enthusiasm than we could have imagined, and we are incredibly thankful for everyone who has shown their support for our work.
We could not be more proud of the number of people we reached and affected in 2019. Works by over 100 women composers were performed live by 120+ musicians. Our organization received national recognition in many publications, including The Washington Post, DCist, The Arts Journal, and more. We launched the National Concert Listings webpage and Consultation Services. We opened our inaugural concert season with a phenomenal performance by Lara Downes, Alicia Hall Moran, and composer Clarice Assad, and, last but certainly not least, our educational programs reached over 400 students. We hope to double our impact in 2020, and to do this, we need your support. Please consider donating to our annual fundraiser. Your contribution is crucial to our continued success and advocacy for women composers.
The Boulanger Initiative, co-founded by Laura Colgate and Joy-Leilani Garbutt, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting music created by women. This includes the music of previous generations, works by living composers, and support for the creation of new music. To support these aims, the Boulanger Initiative is divided into three focus areas: performance, education, and commissions, in addition to advocacy efforts including consultation services and national concert listings. Our aim is to work towards greater inclusivity, and to enrich our collective understanding of what music is, has been, and can be.
If you prefer, you can also donate by check. Checks should be made payable to Boulanger Initiative.
