Feminism in Classical Music

It’s 2024 - why do we still have to talk about it?

Let’s face it: How can we define feminism in the context of classical music? And what’s the status quo? We will assess existing challenges and shed light on gender disparities and the underrepresentation of female composers and musicians.
Let’s dream it: What feminist utopias do we dream of? We aim to inspire a collective vision. We will share thoughts and discuss ideas about how it could be in an ideal world.
Let’s do it: We will focus on concrete solutions and strategies for implementing change. We will share practical initiatives and actions that can be taken to challenge the status quo. From inclusive programming to empowering female talents, this segment proposes tangible steps for an equitable classical music landscape.
This panel contributes to the dialogue on sustainable cultural change. Join us for a thought-provoking exploration of how we might shape a more inclusive and empowering future for the classical music community.
