BBC R3 seeks unsigned women composers

Are you an under-the-radar female classical composer or performer looking to get noticed? Get involved in BBC Radio 3’s new initiative to support women in music.

To celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March, the station has teamed up with BBC Music Introducing to shine a light on unsigned and undiscovered female classical composers and the performers who play their music.

As well as playing recorded tracks, BBC Radio 3 will be inviting performers into the BBC studios to live a live lunchtime concert of music by women composers.

If you would like to get involved, upload your music and performances to and select ‘classical’ as your genre.

The closing date for entries is 8 February 2018.
