Event description

Description

Join Rosalind Appleby and Cathie Travers, accordionist to learn about the contribution of women to Australian classical music.

About Women of Note
Women of Note takes a fresh look at Australia’s history and makes some startling discoveries about the contribution of women to Australian classical music. In the early twentieth century being a female composer was dangerous; one composer was diagnosed as mentally insane by her psychiatrist husband; several achieved success only after their divorces and often the only way to get their music published was to lie about their gender.

She is a music critic for The West Australian and the Western Australian correspondent for London's prestigious Opera Magazine.
