WMC Sunday Concert Series

Women in Music-Columbus presents the 2020 Call for Scores concerts

Look at the faces of today’s women composers; they reflect strength, compassion, insight, and beauty.  For more than 25 years, WMC has sought the best music by contemporary woman composers through our Call for Scores.  Some of this year’s featured artists have achieved national and international fame; some are on the cusp of promising careers.  WMC members, in collaboration with local musicians, are thrilled to bring their inspiring music to a local audience.
