About the Corelia Project
Helping Musicians to Discover Repertoire by Women
In 2022, only 7.7% of works performed in classical music concerts around the world were composed by women.*
Here at the Corelia Project, we're working to change that!
Our mission is to elevate the voices of women and all marginalised genders in classical music through the performance and promotion of their works.
