Celebrating Women’s Voices: Saturday, Aug. 14 | 9pm

by Maggie Molloy

Reena Esmail, Nathalie Joachim, and Caroline Shaw are featured in this week’s episode.

Throughout history, the classical tradition has been made richer by women’s contributions—even if they didn’t always receive proper credit.

On this Saturday’s episode of Second Inversion, we’re celebrating women’s voices. We’ll hear music from women who have helped shape, inspire, and expand the world of classical music. From the modal musings of Hildegard von Bingen to the ear-expanding experiments of Pauline OIiveros and the vibrant, cross-cultural folk songs of Nathalie Joachim, we’ll hear music from women who have made a mark on classical music history. Plus, we’ll talk about why women composers have been historically underrepresented in classical music—and how that’s changing in the 21st century.

To listen, tune in to KING FM on Saturday, August 14 at 9pm PT.
