Approximately half of the world carries two X chromosomes, but when you look at the world of classical music, it's the Y-based composers that hog the spotlight. Now in its eight year, Eastman School of Music's Women in Music Festival helps shed light on female contributions to classical music. This year's guest composer-in-residence is Philadelphia's Melinda Wagner, and the festival includes various performances through the weekend. Check the festival's website for full information.
The 2103 Women in Music Festival 2013 runs through Saturday, March 30, at various venues. Most events are free. For a full schedule and more information visit esm.rochester.edu/wmf.
