From Page to Stage: Emerging Composers Masterclass

JUNE 28th @ 9AM-12PM | First United Methodist Church

The goal of  “From Page to Stage” is to support emerging women composers in gaining a clearer understanding of not only expressing their creativity, but also creating clear scores, cultivating relationships with performers, and the art of collaboration. The master class with festival composer-in-residence Jenni Brandon will explore works submitted by participants, while talks about collaboration and the role of the independent composer will offer participants a well-rounded approach to growing their own careers.



Beyond the Muse: Women's Musical History - Lecture

JUNE 28th @ 6PM | Madison Museum of Contemporary Art

Andrea Fowler, musicologist

"The main idea behind this talk is to highlight the varied roles that women play in the music industry. We are performers, composers, and scholars, yes. And those roles have been public for quite some time. But we are also pedagogues, consiglieri, critics, and administrators, not to mention conductors, librarians, and educators. My goal with this talk is to explore some examples of these roles and to demonstrate how women's cultural agency is a vital part of music in the 21st century."
