The Lost Chord: March 5 - Cherchez la femme

Nearly 150 years after her death, composer Louise Farrenc is finally coming into her own. Farrenc (pictured) was the only female professor at the Paris Conservatory during the whole of the 19th century. Of course, she was only allowed to teach women. However, her stature was such that she was able to demand – and receive – equal pay. Tune in to hear her Symphony No. 3, alongside works by Augusta Holmès and Marie Grandval. Look for the women, this Sunday at 10 pm.
