Pro Musica Associate Music Director Carol Redman

Pro Musica Associate Music Director Carol Redman discusses the history of women in classical music in this 3-part lecture series.

 

Abraham Mendelssohn wrote a letter (1820) to his daughter Fanny, sister of the famous composer Felix Mendelssohn: “Music will perhaps become Felix’s profession, while for you it can and must be only an ornament.” Intrigued by these words, Associate Music Director Carol Redman wondered why women have been so marginalized in the classical music world. The result of her exploration is a 3-part lecture series that traces the paths of musical women from the pre-Christian Era through the music of today. Each lecture will be generously supplemented with pictures, videos, facts and anecdotes. Price of admission includes wine and appetizers. 

 

Registration is required, call 505.988.4640 by October 4, 2019.
