New York Women Composers Membership 2024

You may become a member of New York Women Composers if you are a resident of New York State or the surrounding New York City greater metropolitan area, or if you maintain a part-time physical presence in the New York region. Membership is open to women composers of serious concert music, and to those in artistic occupations who support the recognition of women composers. NYWC is made up of both Composer Members and Advocate Members.
