Don't miss: Women Who Write

Jenna Simeonov

In the midst of a insecure arts climate, the Royal Conservatory of Music is taking International Women’s Day to remind us that art, and support for artists, is still happening. On March 8th, 6:30-7:30pm at Mazzoleni Hall, the RCM in collaboration with the Canadian Music Centre presents Women Who Write, part of their Music Appreciation events line-up.

Sara Constant, flutist and writer for Wholenote leads a round-table dicussion with three Canadian women: Norma Beecroft, pioneer of electronic music composition, Juliet Palmer, composer and Artistic Director of Urbavessel, and Tara Kannangara, Juno-nominated jazz artist and composer. The conversation will “reveal the joys and triumphs of each composer as they find their voices in the Canadian music scene”.

Tickets are just $15, and a reception follows the round-table discussion. For more details about Women Who Write, March 8th at 6:30pm, click here.
