For our Year of the Woman, we focus on three women who used their political, social, and financial connections to promote musical culture in their circles. Although none of these three performed or composed to a significant degree, their influence as patrons was invaluable and guided the course of musical innovation in untold ways.

Join us to celebrate the power of women!
