About Voices of Women
The concert is organized by the Voices of Women research project, an initiative by researchers at various European universities including the UG, with the aim of allowing the voices of female musicians to be heard and to give them a place in the canon. The first conference of the project, entitled ‘Voices of Women: Materialities, Cultural Transfer, and Musical Authorship’, will take place on 1 and 2 December in Groningen.
