Female composers have fought for years against the perception that writing music is a man's game.

This misperception will be challenged at a concert on 4 November 2011, St James Piccadilly, London, to celebrate 100 years since the formation of the Society of Women Musicians.

The concert will include pieces written by women in the early and mid twentieth century against a background of suffrage, feminist campaigning and social change. These pieces will be juxtaposed with specially commissioned responses from women composing today.

Rhian Samuel : Moon and Birds
Lynne Plowman : Siren Song
Amy Cunningham : On Standby
Ethel Smyth : Songs for Chamber Ensemble
Ruth Gipps : Suite for Two Violins
Imogen Holst : Fall of the Leaf
