Film music moves us to feel, to believe, to fear, to lust, to wonder. Enter the world of Women Who Score, an evening-length performance of great music for film, TV, & video games written by 20 of the top female composers in Hollywood.
In 2016, Grand Performances (Los Angeles) teamed up with The Alliance for Women Film Composers to celebrate the music of Hollywoods great women composers. A 55-piece orchestra and a 30-voice chorus were joined by some of the industry’s most prolific songwriters and performers for a mind-blowing concert featuring the music of 20 of Hollywood’s top women composers.
This project is now available on tour, presenting an evening-length multimedia event featuring your orchestra (and chorus TBD). Selected composers will perform and accompany the performance. They will also be available to your community for pre-concert lectures and master classes. Projections of film, TV, and video game clips, will all be perfectly synchronized to the orchestra.
Performers may include:
8-time Academy Award nominated songwriter Diane Warren (the documentary The Hunting Ground)
America’s Got Talent contestant beatboxer/singer/pianist Butterscotch
Emmy Award-winning composer Lolita Ritmanis (Justice League)
Composer and vocalist Kathryn Bostic (Dear White People)
Violinis/Vocalist/Composer Lili Haydn (Anita)
4-time Emmy Award-winning composer Laura Karpman (Underground)
Composer Miriam Cutler (The Hunting Ground; Ethyl)
Be a part of celebrating inclusion, bursting the glass ceiling for women composers, and introduce your audience to great music and musicians through cinematic storytelling.

“The performance was magical. The audience loved the music and the composers were thrilled to be recognized for their contributions to the entertainment industry like never before. The range of styles wowed the audience as they heard music from action films ( “Batman: Mask of the Phantasm” with music by Shirley Walker), historic t.v. dramas (“Underground” with music and lyrics by Laura Karpman and Raphael Saadiq) and more!”
“I was approached by one of the composers after the performance. She said she wanted to thank me for bringing the program to our series and that she had been in the industry for 30 years but tonight was the first time she ever heard her music being performed before a live audience. That comment added to the importance of the evening for me and has sent tingles down the spines of many who heard it from me.”
