About the Festival

The Women Composers Festival of Hartford, now in its fourteenth year, is a celebration of the diverse body of women’s music – both past and present. Join us in March 2014 to explore this innovative, fascinating, and fun music. Festival concerts feature works by local composers, guest artists, and many more!

Continuing our tradition of diversity in performance and outreach takes a great deal of resources. Please consider making a donation to support this effort. Read more about how you can donate.

Support

Thank you so much for your support of the Women Composers Festival of Hartford. Whether you recently learned of our festival or have been an ardent supporter for years, we would like to acknowledge your role in making past festivals a success. Now in its tenth year, the festival has continually highlighted music of historical and current women composers through concerts, lectures, forums, and other outreach efforts across the Greater Hartford area, garnering recognition from institutions such as the International Alliance for Women’s Music as a champion of both new music and women composers.

With the year in full swing, we are about to launch another exciting week of events and ask for your financial support to help us do so. Please check out the exciting information on our 2012 festival and consider donating to keep the festival moving forward. A donation of any amount is appreciated, but the following amounts would help us towards our goals.

$25 can help toward a musician’s honorarium
$50 can help pay for recording and license fees
$100 covers a portion of one evening’s rental fees
$500 can help pay for guest speakers and artists
