The Women Composer YouTube Database is a project designed to make the works of prominent women in music known to a broader base by creating long playlists of works by select female composers and songwritings in classical music, electronica, and film. This is a project begun by award-winning composer Sabrina Pena Young.
The hope is that as more and more of these Youtube Playlists of women composers are made available, the playlists will be shared and other musicians will take the time to create more female composer playlists.
This project was begun in August 2017. The goal is to eventually have 100 + separate playlists highlighting the works of 100+ female composers.
If you are interested in having a playlist made of your work or a prominent female composer as part of this project, please contact Sabrina Pena Young directly through her facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/newmusiccomposer/
I hope you enjoy these works.
