Stamford Symphony Chamber Concert Series Presents Women’s Work, Trailblazing Women Composers of the 19th and 20th Centuries

March 6, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Women's Work, presented by Symphony violinist and musicologist, Gabriel Schaff and pianist Melody Fader, reveal the musical influences of women composers and teachers from the 19th and 20th centuries. The program features many female firsts who stood among men while blazing a well-documented trail for the many talented women composers and musicians that followed. A melodic, delightful and spiritual tribute as we celebrate their musical impact as part of the 2020 centennial anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
