International Women's Day
In the context of International Women’s Day, the Music Department at KCL features women’s contributions to contemporary music with a concert featuring works by Silvina Milstein and Effy Efthymiou. As a showcase for contemporary female achievement in ‘Western art music’ – formerly a forbidding domain for women composers – the concert is unapologetically celebratory. However, a post-concert discussion with the composers, chaired by musicologist Matthew Head, adds complexity by exploring what the category of ‘woman composer’ means to them.
LONTANO conducted by Odaline de la Martinez
Date/time: Thursday 8 March, 19:45
