In-store Concert: We Compose!

The past, present, and future of classical music belongs to all of us. Explore the role of women in classical music - as muses, as performers, and as creators - and examine how these roles have shaped our shared history, our collective memory.

Each month, oboist and composer Laura Adkins shares the stage with different guest musicians, performing everything from arrangements of famous opera arias to 13th century chant to contemporary solo works. This month will include special holiday tunes in the spirit of the season!

Learn about new female composers and performers, and dive into your own memories and beliefs about women in classical music (hint: you have more than you think!).
