A note about the title: The title of the listing clearly has many problems. My collaborators and I are trying to figure out a way to
rename the sheet to be all-encompassing when it comes to race, gender, and and nationality while maintaining its singular goal
of advocating for composers who are historically difficult to find and/or who have been marginalized in favor of a Western Euro-
centric or American cisgender male-dominated canon. For suggestions or conversation about this, please e-mail me.
