The Future is Female

Sarah Cahill & Helen Wallace

A portrait of Sarah leaning on a wooden plinth

400 years, 62 composers but just one pianist: Sarah Cahill performs a day-long celebration of female voices and female creativity, challenging entrenched myths and persistent prejudices.

In a sonic monument to marginalised creativity and a celebration of music from across four centuries, ‘the doyenne of contemporary keyboard music’ (Financial Times) performs a calvacade of music by female composers.

Cahill’s truly epic performance feat is the centrepiece around which co-curator Helen Wallace has built a day of discussion and debate, inviting you to re-examine preconceptions, to question established narratives, and to immerse yourself in a life-enhancing river of music, played by one of the most thought-provoking pianists of our time.
