Trailblazers, Past and Present


March 23, 2022

As our celebration of Women’s History Month continues, this week’s Extra Eclectic showcases some of the women composers who have helped set the stage for the trailblazers of today — like Meredith Monk and Libby Larsen — and some of the innovative women who have continued to carry the music forward, like Missy Mazzoli, Shara Nova, Anna Meredith, and more.
