Classical Music Amarillo Celebrates Women (Part 1)

CMA Ep. 27.jpg

This week Classical Music Amarillo celebrates March as Women's History Month with the first of two programs featuring women composers!

This week's episode will feature recordings from a 2019 Chamber Music Amarillo program titled "Celebrating Women in the Arts" that featured works by women composers from the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. We'll hear sonatas by Elizabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre, as well as music by an American composer whose life and career spanned the nineteenth and twentieth centuries: Amy Beach. The second half of show will present music by contemporary composers Elaine Hagenberg, Harriet Steinke, and Gina Gillie!

HPPR's new host for Classical Music Amarillo, Dr. Kimberly Hieb, brings her rich knowledge of music history to our regional classical music program.
