The Matilda Effect & Highlighting Overlooked Works of Female Composers: A Salon Discussion at the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation

Join the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation founder and Co-Executive Director, Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner, and Dr. Theresa Chen, Instructor of Applied Jazz Piano at Syracuse University, for a salon discussion on the Matilda Effect and the rediscovering and performance of works by female composers. Matilda Joslyn Gage (1826 –1898) was a 19th-century women’s suffragist, a Native American rights activist, an abolitionist, a freethinker, and a prolific author. The Matilda effect is a bias against acknowledging the achievements of women scientists whose work is attributed to their male colleagues. This discussion will be interactive and highlight many of the works featured throughout this Symphoria season including works by Ethyl Smyth, Florence Price, Marian McPartland, Clara Schumann, and Alma Mahler.
