Her Music in Our Time: The Musical Works of Female Composers in the Era of Women's Suffrage - Faculty Cello Recital

In the era of the women’s suffrage movement, talented female composers struggled for the respect and opportunities afforded to their male counterparts. Despite receiving honors for their compositions, these women and their musical works are largely unknown to the musicians and audiences of today. This performance features Hofstra Adjunct Professor of Music Tomoko Fujita, cello, with members of the NY Chamber Music Co-op (Lisa Tipton, violin, Adria Benjamin, viola, and Adrienne Kim, piano). 

 

Guest violinist Shannon Thomas of Florida State University celebrates and gives voice to the music of Dame Ethel Smyth, Nadia Boulanger, Rebecca Clarke, Florence Price, and Germaine Tailleferre.

Funding for these programs has been provided, in part, by the Joseph G. Astman Family for the Hofstra Cultural Center.

In collaboration with the Department of Music
