Almonte Lectures: Cdn Women Musical Pioneers at Almonte Old Town Hall

Apr 26

|

I suspect that you, like most of us who took music lessons, had a woman as a teacher. Teaching music was one of the few professions a woman could follow. Frequently she could pursue teaching in the family home and thus manage to look after children and household duties at the same time. In this presentation, I wish to tell stories of pioneering Canadian women who pursued musical careers as composers, opera singers, instrumental performers, and even conductors. They prepared the ground for the blossoming of female song-writers, composers, and performers after 1950.  Thus, today we are not surprised to see Tania Miller conducting the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra.
