International Women’s Day 2021

“Nothing is better than music; when it takes us out of time, it has done more for us than we have the right to hope for: it has broadened the limits of our sorrowful life, it has lit up the sweetness of our hours of happiness…”

—Nadja Boulanger, revered 20th Century French composer and teacher

Today is International Women’s Day, and here at the ERS we want to celebrate all of the amazing and impactful female artists in our world past, present, and future. Originally, we had planned for a recital featuring all female musicians performing all female-composed works; but this, of course has had to be postponed to a future date.

As always, we miss connecting with our audiences through live performances, but hope you will enjoy this short recording by ERS President and ESO Principal Harpist Nora Bumanis, as she performs a piece by Sophia Dussek.

Enjoy, and be well.
