We can no longer ignore the systemic problems that exist in classical music.
For too long the works of dead, European men were glorified as “masterpieces” while the works of women and people of color were excluded from the concert hall. We at Women’s Philharmonic Advocacy are working to level the playing field for underrepresented composers, and have their works heard.
Founded in 2007 to continue the work of The Women’s Philharmonic, Women’s Philharmonic Advocacy, a nonprofit organization based in California, has continually sought ways to promote performances of works by historic and contemporary women composers. This has included performances grants to professional, community, and youth ensembles throughout the United States, new publications of historic works, and helping to fund commissioning and recording projects.
Your fully deductible donation to our campaign will allow this work to continue as we not only promote and encourage the composers of today and tomorrow, but rediscover and remember the composers who are no longer able to advocate for their own music.
