As we celebrate Women's History Month, Performance Today wants to honor the women who have made a lasting impact on classical music or those who love music. We invite you to nominate a living woman who has inspired you. You do not need to know her personally. Nominees can be performers, composers, conductors, music teachers, or supporters. The winner's primary qualification is that she made a significant contribution to the art form or your appreciation of it.
We will read a few nominating essays on the radio throughout the month, culminating in the announcement of Performance Today's Classical Woman of the Year on Friday, March 29.
Nominations are due by midnight on Monday, March 25. Candidates cannot be self-nominated.
The winner will receive a plaque and a copy of Anna Beer's book Sounds and Sweet Airs: The Forgotten Women of Classical Music.
