Santa Fe Pro Musica presents a unique lecture series exploring why women have been so marginalized in the classical music business. Consider that in 1820, Abraham Mendelssohn wrote a letter to his daughter Fanny, sister of the famous composer Felix Mendelssohn, and stated that “Music will perhaps become Felix’s profession, while for you it can and must be only an ornament.” Intrigued by these words, our Associate Music Director Carol Redman researched the paths of musical women and the obstacles they faced, from ancient Greek civilization through the music of today, and has created a 3-part lecture series. Each lecture will be generously supplemented with pictures, videos, facts and anecdotes. The discoveries are sure to surprise!
