Celebrating women in music
elevates the whole of society.
Helmed by curious musicians
Christine Eggert, Pianist & Katie Harman, Soprano
The Virtuosa Society is an innovative collective,
connecting audiences with fascinating, beautiful and hidden-in-plain-sight works of music by remarkable women
spanning history, genre and culture.
Conceptualized by soprano Katie Harman and pianist Christine Eggert,
The Virtuosa Society was founded to showcase new compositional development driven by female composers across genres.
When they undertook a historical investigation to uncover a hidden corpus of work by women, Eggert and Harman discovered a startling thread binding the stories of female composers: most had to find extraordinary, often secret ways to create work – forming secret societies and clubs as a means of sharing, honing and performing their works.
The Virtuosa Society seeks to
PERFORM // EDUCATE // CONNECT.
In a variety of media platforms, they share intriguing stories, songs and piano works, marrying detailed technique with rich interpretation founded on extensive research and collaboration with musicians from across genres... thus evolving the concept of SOCIETY.
Dr. Stephen Rogers praised the duo as "sharing stunning performance with the wider world." (Thomas Hampson's Song and Beyond Podcast, 2021)
