"Music by Women: Past, Present, and Future"

Throughout history, women composers have routinely encountered societal issues that hindered their creative endeavors. Even in the twenty-first century, women are far less represented on concert programs than their male counterparts. A recent survey of major American orchestras revealed that the work of women composers comprised only 1.8% of concert programs, and women do not fare much better as writers of musicals and film scores. This presentation will look at historical reasons for this imbalance, analyze the present situation, and look optimistically toward a future in which there is more parity between female and male composers in the music world.


Dr. Matthew Hoch is Associate Professor of Voice in the Department of Music at Auburn University. Among his many publications are articles in the Journal of the International Alliance for Women in Music and a recently published book, So You Want to Sing Music by Women, coauthored with Linda Lister. Hoch is affiliate faculty in women’s studies at Auburn University, where he developed the
institution’s first-ever Women in Music course, offered at both undergraduate and graduate levels and in live and online formats.

Free and open to the public. For more information, contact Arianne Gaetano at amg0028@auburn.edu.
