March 8. 2011 marks the centenary celebration of International Women's Day. Each March 8, for the last 25 years, I have programmed a veritable festival of women in music. I did this for rock, I did it for jazz, and these days, with the help of interns from the Eastman School of Music's Arts Leadership Program, I do it for classical.
