Sara Kirkland Snider ~ Composer of Music

Featured in The Washington Post’s “Top 35 Female Composers in Classical Music”

Sarah was recently featured in Anne Midgette of The Washington Post‘s “Top 35 Female Composers in Classical Music.” Anne writes:

“NPR’s recent list of the 150 greatest albums by women was inspiring — but where were the composers? In the wake of much discussion about the chronic underrepresentation of female composers on American concert programs, I came up with my own best-of list. Since I was responding to a list of recordings, I confined myself to artists active in the recorded music era, the 20th and 21st centuries — leaving out Hildegard von BingenFanny MendelssohnClara Wieck SchumannBarbara StrozziMarianne Martinez, and many others. My selections are based on a combination of personal preference and some idea of what constitutes “importance,” and it was hard to winnow it down to only 35.”
