The Kapralova Society website reviews

The Kapralova Society continues to contribute to the musical dialogue through its research and promotion of women in music.

Finally, the very impressive Kapralova Society’s web site is dedicated to Women Conductors. It is a most comprehensive resource. See: http://www.kapralova.org/CONDUCTORS.htm

We heard about your wonderful site from a prominent conductor. Your work is very valuable. Thank you.

I visited the website of the The Kapralova Society and I admired your work.

Women Composers, created by The Kapralova Society.... An excellent site which includes a database listing perhaps the less acknowledged, but equally talented female composers throughout history. Some of the best loved and timeless compositions we know of today, were actually created by women.

I came across your society and resources and it seems you are doing wonderful work in support of women in music!
Victoria Gau, Conductor

Women composers are an often forgotten group in the music world. However, they number in the thousands from around the world, dating as far back as the 11th century. A comprehensive list of women composers can be found at http://www.kapralova.org/DATABASE.htm

Je viens de publier une courte biographie de Vítezslav Novák pour laquelle votre page http://www.kapralova.org/NOVAK.htm m'a bien aidé. Je voulais donc vous remercier pour ce travail. De plus, je me suis rendu compte que je n'avais jusqu'alors pas pensé ŕ présenter des compositrices / musiciennes sur mon site : cette erreur sera je l'espčre bientôt réparée avec Vitezslava Kapralova, Clara Schumann ou autre.

This website has shown that there definitely are female conductors around, but for some reason I hadn't seen any until last friday...

Discovering new women composers is like finding hidden treasures. It would take a lifetime to read about all of these amazing women. The Kapralova Society website makes it easy to identify these composers and conductors and learn about their music. There are many of us out there searching for new and historic music.
Carolyn Broe

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.

kapralova.org was the inspiration for our association to build a similar database with women composers from all times and all countries.

First of all I want to salute you to an excellent database! I'm currently producing a feminist art music festival in Berlin, and your database has proven a wonderful tool to experience new composers.

Congratulations on your precious work for women composers!
Carlotta Ferrari, composer

Such a fantastic resource!
