“So many exciting, interesting and beautiful musical discoveries! A rich aural joy, by which one can only wonder why one hasn’t encountered these works previously in concert… Sequel for Women’s Day 2016 planned I trust!”
Sabine Scherrer

“You (director Jessica Horsley) led excellent rehearsal work, were always polite and patient, which I greatly valued, and conducted inspirationally at the concert, leading well but also giving the necessary freedom to make music. Congratulations and “chapeau” – because the programme was not easy and the group had never before made music together…”
Rico Zela, 2nd Oboe, L’anima giusta

“It is unbelievable that the works of women composers were “unheard” for so long – simply because women composed them! It was indescribably beautiful to experience the musical creative power of four women composers on International Women’s Day. Huge thanks go to Jessica Horsley and to all the musicians and others involved.”

Lic. phil. Karin Haeberli, Representative for Family Matters and Parental Education, Education Department of the Canton of Basel City
