MusicaFemina – Women made music – out of the shadows and into the light
From 4 July till 2 September 2018 an exhibition in the Schönbrunn Plant Orangery is focusing for the first time on women composers in music history.
Women made music: “Happy Birthday to You”, probably the best known song in the world, composed by Mildred and Patty Hill!
During the exhibition the Plant Orangery will be taken over entirely by women who from time immemorial have also achieved great things in music. In a year featuring multiple anniversaries and commemorations, Irene Suchy and Clarisse Maylunas are staging an interactive and dynamic theme exhibition, from Sappho to Madonna, from Clara Schumann to Maria Theresia Paradis. Schönbrunn – a haven for women composers ever since the time of Maria Theresa!
4 July – 31 August 2018: daily 9 am – 6 pm
1 / 2 September 2018: daily 9 am – 5 pm
