Women shape the world and their influence on symphonic music is far greater than the average classical music program might lend you to believe. In Hear Me Roar, we challenge the traditional image of the classical music composer and present the work of artists from all over the world and spanning nearly a century. This concert celebrates women’s unique voices in classical music and places their work center stage, where it has always belonged.


For the 2017/18 Season, Chicago Sinfonietta has commissioned works by four diverse women composers to premiere during the season and be recorded and released as the orchestra’s 16th album in 2019.
