IN PRAISE OF WOMAN - 2011 - THIS MARCH ON CLASSICAL DISCOVERIES AND AVANT-GARDE EDITION

Every March from 2004, in observance of Women’s History Month, Classical Discoveries pays tribute to music by women composers from all over the world and through the centuries. Every regular scheduled program (that includes the new Avant-Garde Edition starting in 2009) is exclusively devoted to their music.

This March please check the weekly posting for highlights and upcoming features.

The first two shows of the series will air Wednesday, March 02, 2011. As in previous years the third Wednesday will be devoted to American Women composers.
