Every regularly scheduled Wednesday program in March is exclusively devoted to their music. Because of a special WPRB event on March 06, the first program will air on March 13. The final program of this annual series will air on April 3.

The second show of the series will air Wednesday, March 20, 2019 and will be devoted to American Women composers.
