Often overlooked in online surveys of composers are the hundreds of women who have made a lasting contribution to the world of music. This site, part of the Women in Music project of Ontario's Kapralova Society, helps to fill in the gaps with this impressive list of female composers of both past and present. Arranged alphabetically by composer's last name, the list offers birth and death dates, where available, as well as nationality. Hypertext links provide access to additional online information when it is available.
