Our IndieGogo Campaign is now live!

WomenComposers_11x17Poster_rev3Want to support women’s music in Connecticut and beyond?  The Women Composers Festival is running a fundraising campaign to help offset the costs of our 2015 events and future activities.  For the last fourteen years, we have provided an educational and entertaining platform for the promotion of women composers.  We need your assistance to continue this tradition in the future, allowing us to bring underrepresented repertoire to the Greater Hartford area, collaborate with regional and national musicians and composers, and undertake new advocacy projects.

Help the 2015 Women Composers Festival of Hartford reach its funding goal today!
