Summary: This study of women in American music looks at past and present trends and recounts individual stories of composers, instrumentalists, conductors, orchestra and opera managers, and music educators. Ammer (a writer and amateur musician) discusses attitudes toward women's roles in both music and society, looking back to the earliest European settlers in the 1600s, but focusing on the years 1800-2000. New chapters and material have been added to this edition. Although i
t can be argued that tremendous strides have been made in the opportunities available to women, this study offers a long-term perspective on the inadequate recognition women receive and the comparatively small number of them hired to serve on music faculties and in symphony orchestras.
