Marathon Details (Program)
Date: Saturday, April 7 | 9:00am-5:00pm
Location: Gruss Hall, Austin Arts Center, Trinity College
The music marathon, held in Gruss Hall at Trinity College, is held up in opposition to the frequent practice by mainstream venues and performers to present entire seasons devoid of music composed by women because of the purported difficulty of finding quality music by women. A symbolic day of programming suggests that any musical organization could, if they chose, program entire seasons of high-quality works by women. Performances were selected from a competitive call garnering applicants from across the globe.
