2019 Festival

The Women Composers Festival of Hartford continues its annual tradition of celebrating the diversity of women’s music with its 2019 Festival, scheduled to take place March 29 & 30, 2019. This year’s festival features Composer-in-Residence Jennifer Jolley and Ensemble-in-Residence The Nouveau Classical Project. The Festival will include performances of historical and living women composers held at iconic Hartford institutions Trinity College and Asylum Hill Congregational Church. We are very excited to also be showing the completed documentary about the 2018 Festival and the overall organization during the Festival!
