In celebration of International Women’s Day, the networking group UCL Women is pleased to present Chamber Music by Female Composers: A Musical Kaleidoscope Across the Centuries. Conceived and produced by Helene Albrecht with Young Musicians from the London Guildhall School of Music, this concert will take place in the Housman Room at 8.30 PM on Friday, 8 March.
Admission is free and all are welcome, including non-UCL friends. The young musicians will be playing music from women throughout the ages, many of whom were dismissed because of their gender but who are now considered the equals of some of their famous male contemporaries or relatives. These include Fanny Mendelssohn, Clara Schumann, Hildegard von Bingen and others.
