The Learned Ladies

I was recently contacted by Scott Guy; who is producing a musical webseries called The Learned Ladies. It is focused on featuring stories, songs, poems and essays from under-represented women composers and forgotten women authors of the past. Award-winning actress Elise Dewsberry plays southern belle Ann Reeves Jarvis as she welcomes us into her pre-Civil-War music room, introducing us to women authors and composers, like an antebellum “Masterpiece Theatre.”  Upcoming seasons will focus on “The Women of Boston,” “The Daughters of the American Revolution,” and we’re contemplating an entire season dedicated to The Lowell Offering.

I thought some of our readers might be interested in this fascinating and ambitious project.
