Nordic Women Composers


Two meetings: 09.30-12.30 Thursday 7 sept + Friday 8 sept
Export of Music by Nordic Women Composers

We will create a new data base with works by women and nonbinary composers in the genre of Western Art Music from the Nordic countries.
What should the database be called and how do we increase the proportion of historical music?

This autumn we are hiring a project manager on a part-time basis.
Contribute to our aim and take part in the seminars!

Seminar 7 and 8 September at 9.30-12.30

A suggested name is ”Nordic Music Database”, what do you think? Do you have a suggestion of your own?

How did ”Levande Musikarv” in Sweden do when they found unreleased older music? Savo Music Society delivers success after success and digitizes older music – how do they work?
