Thea Musgrave

Scottish-American composer Thea Musgrave, now 90, has built a reputation for richly scored compositions with a powerful sense of drama and purpose. Her body of work includes orchestral music, choral pieces, and opera. Join us on Sunday, March 31, as we conclude our Women's History Month celebration with Ms. Musgrave's 1997 work, Phoenix Rising, a musical journey from darkness to light, representing the mythical bird rising from the ashes.

Wavelengths brings you the best in contemporary classical music featuring works from the mid-20th century through today, every Sunday at 9 p.m. Eastern.
