Contemporary music is dominated by male performers, and great female music writers and performers are often overlooked. This course will present great songs written and recorded by some of the best contemporary female artists of today – some working as solo artists and some as lead singers of top bands. Included will be music performed by Barbra Streisand, Dionne Warwick, Judy Garland, Julie Andrews, Joni Mitchell, Natalie Merchant, Natalie Maines, Sarah McLachlan, Dusty Springfield, Linda Ronstadt, Stevie Nicks, Carly Simon, Karen Carpenter, Carole King, and others.
