Don’t miss our season of Spotlight on Women Composers, our most adventurous season ever! According to a Baltimore Symphony Orchestra survey of the 22 largest American orchestras, women composers accounted for only 1.8 percent of the total works performed. This season the Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic will help redress that balance and “even the score.” As you can see from our 2018-19 program, 14 of the 16 works WMP performs are by women composers.
