Viva composing women

Join the video competition Musique est une Femme

When we talk about classic composers, people often think of names as Bach, Chopin, Vivaldi or Shubert. But does anybody ever talk about female grandmasters, like Clara Schumann, Hildegard van Bingen or Isabella Leonarda?

Musique est une femme

Musique est une femme is a European project that aims to give female composers from before the 20th century the spotlight they deserve. Do you share that opinion?

Let us hear from you! Send a short film or meme about this theme before April 5th 2020 and you could win eternal fame and great cash prizes. Good luck!

Musique est une femme is a project which aims to reinforce this process. It is a joint initiative by the foundation TAK-Temat Aktualny Kultura /Poland, Handelsbeurs Concert Hall/Belgium, Molyvos International Music Festival/Greece, and the Cēsis Concert Hall/Latvia.
