Women's History Month

(Rochester, NY) – In honor of Women's History Month, Classical 91.5 celebrates the accomplishments of female composers and performers by presenting works and performances throughout the month of March. And, on International Women's Day, Thursday, March 8, 2018, Classical host Julia Figueras will dedicate her entire shift to women artists.

This year, Classical 91.5 will take the celebration to the next level by launching a web page, where the hosts have compiled resources, blogs, interviews and highlights celebrating women. Visit Classical915.org and you'll also learn more about the women composers database project created by a composer at SUNY Fredonia.
