Other than Fanny Mendelssohn and Clara Schumann, are you familiar with or have heard of classical music by women composers? Can you name more than a few women composers? After the next 6 weeks you will be able to do so and even answer Jeopardy questions on the topic. We will explore the biographies and music of these great women who crafted classical music beginning in the 11th century, yes, the 11th century, up to the present.
