From the early, medieval compositions of composer, writer, scientist Hildegard of Bingen, through the extraordinary works of 2017’s all female Pulitzer prize finalists, Ashley Fure, Kate Super, and winner Du Yun, and to this year’s 2019 Tony Award’s Best Musical Hadestown by Anaïs Mitchell, women’s contributions to music have resonated throughout history.
