The March of Women!

Until very recently, women composers and musicians were almost always ignored, or grossly patronised

Friday 21 Nov, 7:30pm, Unity House, Fennel Street, Loughborough

Composer and violinist Sonja Grossner will be discussing the many distinguished women classical composers in the last 1000 years, with an interlude from Geoff Gay ( “a bit of a pianist” as he would put it ) about the role of women in Jazz.
Both Sonja and Geoff will bring examples of the actual music.
