Host

Enjoy a glass of wine while perusing literary masterworks at bohemian Book & Bar in beautiful Portsmouth, New Hampshire, as we celebrate music by women's composers throughout the ages with Palaver Strings!

For too long, women have been shunted to the sidelines of history, their voices silenced and their influence minimized. The history of classical music is no exception, and even the most gifted female musicians were discouraged from pursuing their careers, their work relegated to the footnotes of music history textbooks.

Even today as more opportunities open up for female performers, composers, directors, and producers, these systemic injustices persist. With music from the renaissance, twentieth century, and a world premiere by Sato Matsui, Ready Or Not celebrates the diverse voices and unique artistic visions of women throughout the ages, who have always made music whether the world was ready or not.
