Among the highlights is the premiere of the wife; the Woman by Durham composer Georgie West. Specially commissioned and performed by Bailey Chamber Orchestra, the piece is inspired by the life and work of Austrian composer Alma Mahler.


The concert forms part of a series of events hosted by the Music Department, with partners across Durham University, to mark International Women’s Day 2024. Highlights include These Things Shall Be: Ailsa Dixon, a concert of works by Music Department and St Mary’s College alumna Ailsa Dixon (1932–2017); and a screening (plus Q&A discussion) of Deep Listening: The Story of Pauline Oliveros, a documentary about the iconic composer, performer, teacher, philosopher, innovator and humanitarian.
