Women Composers Readings and Commissions Program: Past Recipients

The Women Composers Readings and Commissions program is an initiative of the League of American Orchestras, in partnership with American Composers Orchestra (ACO) and supported by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation.

  • Forty women composers benefitted from career development via the EarShot Readings
  • Sixteen composers have now received commissions
  • Eight premieres have taken place (premieres by Julia Adolphe, Courtney Bryan, Melody Eötvös, Robin Holcomb, Chen-Hui Jen, Hannah Lash, Andreia Pinto Correia, and Andrea Reinkemeyer)
