Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman celebrates the approaching centennial of women’s suffrage: Clara Schumann, Fannie Mendelssohn, Marianna Martinez, Ethel Smyth, Lili Boulanger, Amy Beach and Augusta Holmès move from footnotes to forces in the annals of classical music as women gain the vote and their artistic voices.
Classical music concerts at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts are supported in part by the Dayton Fowler Grafman Endowment for Classical Music.
