The Women Composers Festival of Hartford embraces diversity of race, ethnicity, and ability. The mission of the Festival is to feature artists who identify as women, including transgender and gender-fluid individuals. The Festival is open to presentations from composers/performers/speakers who are willing to confront gender and other intersecting identities in their work.

These events will be part of the WCFH 2022 Festival, March 11 – 13, 2022 at the University of Hartford’s The Hartt School.

**We acknowledge that, given the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot predict whether our 2022 Festival will be in-person, fully virtual, or a hybrid combination.
