The LunART Chamber Music Collective, a high-octane ensemble based in Madison, WI, is dedicated to performing music by women composers, embodying LunART’s mission of supporting, inspiring, promoting, and celebrating women’s creativity in the arts! Composed of seasoned, versatile chamber musicians from around the world, the group presents works by rising and established composers, staying true to LunART’s tagline: “celebrating women from past to present, revered to forgotten, from rap to rhapsody. The brainchild of Artistic/Executive Director Iva Ugrcic, LunART, Inc began in 2018 as an interdisciplinary arts festival and has provided a platform for hundreds of women composers and musicians, dancers, and visual and spoken word artists. The organization is quickly becoming a leader in arts activism, growing to include year-round educational programming and LunART Live, an interview series featuring women artists. The Collective’s most recent endeavor, a full-length album featuring music performed and premiered at 2022 summer festival, will have a special emphasis on brand new, previously unrecorded works by contemporary living women composers, as well as lesser-known gems by established historical trailblazers. The recording is projected for release in Spring 2023 and will be available on all streaming services.
