10 x 10 - Holiday Repertoire

Anna’s 10 x 10 - Composers you should know series: Holiday Repertoire!


Last month, a colleague asked me to offer a few suggestions for holiday compositions (specifically for the December holidays) by women and/or BIPOC composers. To my surprise, the task was trickier than I had thought it would be! Though I did find some great pieces, I realized that there were very few orchestral compositions in this genre. So this is definitely a niche market that needs to be addressed.

As many of us look towards a challenging concert season, I hope we all encourage and provide opportunities for these composers to produce new works for holiday celebrations. What a delight it would be to have an abundance of new uplifting compositions to add to our holiday programs!

Until then, it is my pleasure to introduce (or possibly reacquaint) you to a few terrific compositions to listen to and add to your holiday programming list.


I hope you enjoy!
