Siegal Lifelong Learning Program offers remote course celebrating 100 years of classical women artists

In honor of the 19th Amendment’s recent 100th anniversary, the Siegal Lifelong Learning Program will host a course as a timely tribute to the contribution women artists have made to great music. Featuring trail-blazing artists of the past and present, “One Hundred Years of Great Women Classical Artists” will highlight women keyboard artists, violinists and virtuosa on other instruments, as well as great women singers, composers, and conductors. While the rise of women conductors to prominence is relatively recent, the first Western composer was the Abbess Hildegarde of Bingen, whose life spanned the 12th century.

This course will be held Mondays from March 1 to April 12 from 1:30 to 3 p.m.
