Spring for Music Programs

Spring for Music 2013's six orchestras include two conducted by women, the Baltimore Symphony (Marin Alsop) and Buffalo Philharmonic (JoAnn Faletta). Baltimore is the only orchestra performing music composed by a woman; they've got works of Jennifer Higdon. [Embarrassing error removed; see comments.]

Spring for Music 2014, the fourth and last of the series, has no women among the composers or conductors.

Giya Kancheli looks very masculine to me... http://www.schirmer.com/default.aspx?TabId=2419&State_2872=2&ComposerId_2872=2423

Ugh, seriously, Higdon is representing all womankind?! Yuck.
