  • The Advocacy Committee encourages performances, recordings, and broadcasts of women’s music. Every week, through our Radio Requests campaign, we promote the work of a particular woman composer, and we are compiling a list of “friendly” radio stations, those inclined to broadcast work by women composers.
  • We monitor concert programs and encourage concert programmers to include compositions by women.
  • Our work to end discriminatory employment practices has included, in recent years, protests of the Vienna Philharmonic’s North American tour. For more information, please see VPO Watch and William Osborne’s Web page.
