OVER 100 YEARS OF WOMEN AND THE SAXOPHONE

In 2015 Amy launched the co-founded project ‘Over 100 Years of Women and the Saxophone’ at the World Saxophone Congress in Strasbourg. The project is a celebration of the women who were integral in developing and pioneering the instrument and its repertoire throughout the saxophone’s history. Since then, the project has been featured as part of the RCM’s 2016 International Women’s Day celebrations including on BBC Radio 3, as well as lecture-recitals at the First International Conference on Women’s Work in Music in Bangor, Wales, and at the European Saxophone Congress in Porto.
