'The Women Who Score' Concert Draws Big Crowds, Big Name Composers to L.A


“Women composers are no longer invisible, they are no longer silent.” With those words, KUSC executive producer Gail Eichenthal helped kick off “The Women Who Score: Soundtracks Live,” Friday (Aug. 19) night’s concert featuring the music of more than 20 female composers as part of Downtown Los Angeles’ Grand Performances series.

The evening highlighted music written by women from film, television, video games and interactive media, including pieces by Diane Warren, Rachel Portman, Starr Parodi, Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman, and Laura Karpman, performed by a 55-piece orchestra and 30-person choir.

Presented by Alliance for Women Film Composers, in association with The Film Music Society and White Bear Public Relations, the concert comes at a time when The Alliance and other organizations, such as Women in Film and the Guild of Music Supervisors, are working toward greater participation by women in music: in 2015 women scored fewer than two percent of the top 250 films.
