Hispanic Society Conversation and Music Performance Celebrating Hispanic Women Composers

This live YouTube music Event with Dr. Elizabeth Weinfield will highlight works by women composers with cultural roots in the Iberian peninsula, focusing on Leonora Duarte (1610–1678), a Portuguese-Jewish converso living and working in Antwerp, and the only known woman to write for the viola da gamba in the 17th century.
