The Polish Chamber Musicians' Association is organising the first international online festival "Women in Music". The programme of the event aimed at promoting female composers and their work will include music by artists from Poland and Great Britain. The concerts will be made available on the Association's YouTube channel on 4, 5, 11, and 12 October 2021.
The concerts recorded at the Baltic Sea Cultural Centre in Gdańsk will feature works by Wanda Landowska, Régine Wieniawski, Grażyna Bacewicz, Łucja Szablewska, Ewa Fabiańska-Jelińska, Anna Rocławska-Musiałczyk, as well as Roxanna Panufnik, Judith Weir, Rebecci Clarke, Elaine Hugh-Jones and Elisabeth Lutyens. Among the performers will be also women: violist Katarzyna Budnik, violinists Katarzyna Duda and Jaga Klimaszewska, pianists Julia Kociuban, Julia Samojło and Monika Gardoń-Preinl.
The concert to be broadcast on 4 October was realised with the support of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London – it was performed by the GSMD's graduates: sopranos Magdalena Molendowska, Katherine McIndoe and pianist Julia Samojło.
The event is held under the honorary patronage of Mieczysław Struk, Marshal of the Pomeranian Voivodeship, Aleksandra Dulkiewicz, President of the City of Gdańsk, and the British Embassy in Warsaw.
The project is funded by the Pomeranian Voivodeship and co-financed by the City of Gdańsk and the Gdańsk Economic Development Foundation.
