The balance is off

Female composers are still largely ignored - which is completely inexcusable and a huge loss for us all, for stating the obvious. A 2019 survey found that in 1,445 classical concerts across the globe that took place between 2018-2019, only 76 included a work by a woman. Or in other words, about 95% of concerts had music only composed by men. Read the full article in the Guardian here.

There is no lack of female composers, there is no lack of great works by these composers. Be outraged, raise the awarness, write to your local programmer.
