When the University of Hartford was incorporated just over 50 years ago by business and community leaders, they envisioned a center of education and culture for Greater Hartford. At its core, it would be a university for the community created by the community.
The University has come a long way since its humble beginnings on Hartford’s last remaining farm, evolving from a local school for commuters into a comprehensive university that attracts students from throughout the world. Yet it remains true to its original mission of serving as a valued resource for individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout the Hartford region, offering hundreds of programs that serve the University and its neighbors every day. For over 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.
Tuesday Evening Classics - Women Composers Festival Preview
Join Tuesday Evening Classics host David Schonfeld from 4-8 p.m. for a program honoring the many wonderful (and too often neglected) compositions by female composers. David will be playing recordings of music by Joan Tower and Lera Auerbach (in addition to works by Telemann, Bartok, Scarlatti, Homilius, and C.P.E. Bach).
From about 5-6 p.m., David will be talking with guest Daniel Morel about this year's Women Composers Festival of Hartford. Daniel will provide "teaser" tracks of music and composers to be featured during the Festival.
The Women Composers Festival of Hartford continues its annual tradition of celebrating the diversity of music by female composers with five engaging concerts, March 6-9, 2014. Featuring Philadelphia-based composer, Andrea Clearfield, as this year’s composer-in-residence, the festival includes performances of historical and living women composers.
