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.

As part of our Fall Fundraising Campaign running from now until Oct. 23, board members from the Women Composers Festival of Hartford, along with a few special guests, will present an exciting evening of music. “Love, Motherhood, and the Female Gaze” explores the ways that women composers offer unique perspectives on parenthood, romantic relationships, and the female body.
The concert will be held on Oct. 23 at 7:30 pm in the historic Charter Oak Cultural Center. Tickets are a suggested donation of $20 for general admission or $5 for students, educators, and seniors. Tickets are available ahead of time online or at the door.
Additionally, we have teamed up with Savers Thrift Store as part of this event, which means that we are accepting donations in the form of cash, check, and bags of gently used clothing, accessories, books, and small household items! We will also be selling swag from our Indiegogo campaign, which you can check out ahead of time here.
Don’t miss this exciting event!
