A Modern Reveal: Songs and Stories of Women Composers is an online resource dedicated to promoting the vocal works and stories of historical female composers who have been overlooked for centuries.

This project grew out of our passion to explore the lives of fascinating and talented female composers and give them voices today by offering unique insights into the successes and challenges they faced during their careers.

All of us have the opportunity and obligation to be advocates for women composers who are an integral part of our musical tradition to ensure they are studied as often as their male counterparts. We encourage you to read about these women, find inspiration from them, and, most importantly, perform their works often.

Women’s silence in their musical expression is…due to historical causes that have brought about a non-permissive environment for the woman musician.
— Sophie Drinker from Music and Women, 1948
