Suggested Donation: $15.00
Reception to follow

We are expanding our 2018-19 performance series, beginning with a performance from Duo Alterity. Allison Hughes, flute, and Joseph Van Doran, guitar, will perform pieces by Alexis Carrier, Yufei Chen (premiered during the 2018 Connecticut Summerfest), and Hartt School alum Gwyneth Walker. The afternoon will also include a private first-look at the 2018 documentary about the Women Composers Festival of Hartford and the work we do.

Can’t make the concert, but still want to donate? You can make your tax-deductible donation to WCFH here.

We are now accepting submissions for our 2019 International Score Call for the 2019 Ensemble-in-Residence, the Nouveau Classical Project. We are also accepting applications from composers/performers to be a part of the 2019 Music Marathon, and from presenters/performers for the 2019 Women Composers Forum.

The 2019 Women Composers Festival of Hartford is scheduled to take place March 29 & 30, 2019.

We also have a rolling application process for composers and performers interested in being our future Composer-in-Residence and Ensemble-in-Residence.

This year’s Women Composers Festival of Hartford was a great success! We hope you enjoyed all of the festival events and discovered some new composers and pieces you love. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without the passion a dedication of all of our performers, composers, and presenters, and our growing audience. Thank you for your attendance and continued support!
