Rhythm Method: Hidden Mothers

Sunday, May 9, 2021 at 7:00pm
Due to inclement weather, this concert will be held on its rain date: Wednesday, May 12 at 7:00pm

The Rhythm Method brings the music of historical female composers into the public eye through research, performance, and recording. While many of the composers featured on this program achieved an impressive degree of public recognition in their lifetime, their music has often been belittled or ignored by music historians, music programmers, and musicians. This suppression of yesterday’s female voices has a direct impact on our idea of who gets to be a composer today, and contributes to the dearth of female composers, living or deceased, represented in classical and contemporary repertory. The hope of this project is that by giving these historical female composers their due, we can empower young female artists, as well as non-binary artists, artists of color, and artists from other marginalized groups, to continue to create and share their work with the world and to stand up to the biases which remain entrenched in so many of our cultural institutions.
