This summer, Chamber Music Northwest’s 2017 festival programming will focus on the significant contributions of women composers. The opening night concert showcases a few of the greats – Fanny Mendelssohn (1805-1847), Clara Schumann (1819-1896), and Amy Beach (1867-1944) – that helped to forge a path for future generations, but many of the events throughout the festival will revolve around the works that are being written today.
Among the world premieres and panel discussions at this year’s festival, Chamber Music Northwest will feature the works of ELLEN TAAFFE ZWILICH and VALERIE COLEMAN. In anticipation of this summer’s festivities, both women were recently featured in a series of promotional videos that dive into the unique challenges they have faced throughout their careers and the encouraging prospects they see for the future.
