To mark the centenary of the Representation of the People Act and the Parliament (Qualification of Women) Act, Scordatura Women’s Music Collective presents a programme of music by women on the theme of protest and resistance. The concert features the world premiere of Amy Bryce’s setting of Suffragette prison testimonies, as well as Louise Farrenc’s Nonet, the piece she used to force the Paris Conservatoire to grant her equal pay.

Scordatura Women’s Music Collective is a mixed chamber ensemble dedicated to performing music written by women, to supporting and performing current composers and, through outreach work, to inspiring the next generation of women to compose.
