Throughout history, the classical tradition has been made richer by women’s contributions—even if they didn’t always receive the proper credit.
This Saturday on Second Inversion, we’re celebrating women’s voices. In honor of Women’s History Month, we’ll share 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, March 4 at 9pm PT.
