MUS 247 - Creator, Patron Muse: Roles of Women in Music

Throughout the history of music, many women have been revered as performers, mostly singers or virtuoso keyboard artists. In reality, contributions to music by women are much more varied than that of performer. As composers and inspiration for composers, women have been responsible for the creation of a significant body of compositions in every historical era. As steadfast patrons of the arts, vast numbers of commissions were granted, compositions written, music clubs established, performers employed, and concert halls created. This study of music created and inspired by female composers combined with an understanding of their considerable philanthropy will cast a new light upon the roles of women in music.
