Webinar recording: Are you programming women composers?

In this recording of our webinar (original event 21 January 2022), a panel of guest speakers discussed population gender balance not being reflected in the music we play, sing and listen to, as per recent research. 

We welcomed:

  • Elizabeth de Brito from The Daffodil Perspective, the world’s first gender-balanced, racially equitable classical music podcast

  • Helen Sanderson, trustee for The F-list, founder of Guitar Circus and Head of Guitar Studies at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama

  • Soprano Gabriella Di Laccio from Donne, Women in Music, which celebrates, advances, and amplifies women in music by creating several free multimedia resources and commissioning relevant research

  • Sharon Moloney, music director for Opal Flutes and Making Music’s Member engagement and events manager with Kate Quarry, Harmony Sinfonia’s music librarian

  • Tom Farncombe, Business Development Director at Hal Leonard Europe, and Louise Unsworth, Senior Publication Editor (Repertoire)

The views represented by the speakers in this webinar are their own, and do not represent the views of Making Music.
