A Baltimore Symphony study found that less than 2% of major orchestral programming consists of pieces by female composers. We’re working to improve that number as we pay homage to the women of music’s past and present. We’ll showcase the world premiere of Cristina Spinei’s Strut! for Orchestra, the bold atmospheres of Chen Yi’s Ge Xu – Antiphony, the vibrant May Phang performing Clara Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A Minor, and Amy Beach’s historic Gaelic Symphony.
