While amateur music making was encouraged for women in the 18th century, professional female musicians were uncommon. Colonial Americans often learned of musicians such as Maddalena Sirmen and Marianne Davies from newspaper accounts of London performances. A number of female musicians were successful composers. Others were known because of their published music or concert series. Discover the varied roles of music in women’s lives as you enjoy representative music by and for some talented European women.
