“NEW MUSIC GROUPS SEEM TO START UP ALMOST EVERY WEEK, BUT OCCASIONALLY ONE LAUNCHES THAT MAKES YOU NOT JUST LISTEN, BUT ALSO STOP AND THINK"
Marshall Marcus, Secretary General
European Union Youth Orchestra
Did you know that last year, just 5% of classical music pieces performed worldwide were written by women? That's the highest % ever recorded.
Her Ensemble is a string orchestra that formed during the pandemic with the aim to make a positive impact on the gender gap in the music industry.
To celebrate International Women's Day and Women's History Month, we designed a poster with as many female composers as we could fit on there!
Our inspiration came from a phrase we'd all heard so many times, so we decided to make a visual representation of this - with all these incredible women in the background being overlooked by this sweeping statement. (So many that we literally couldn't fit them all on the page!)
