Today is International Women’s Day, and folks around the country are paying homage to the achievements of female leaders, thinkers and changemakers in American history! As we also find ourselves in the middle of Women’s History Month, what better time to pay closer attention to the importance of gender diversity in music. As a foundation dedicated to and passionate about the voice of women in arts and culture, we’ve put together an inspiring “Women of Levitt” Spotify playlist with music by just some of the female artists who have performed on Levitt stages across the country!
Women artists have been at the forefront of some of the most memorable Levitt concerts ever. Whether it’s soulful legends like Mavis Staples and the late and great Sharon Jones, or artists like vocal powerhouse Ruthie Foster, recently honored by the coveted United States Awards, Levitt stages represent the achievements of countless female artists, both seasoned and contemporary. Check out the playlist and sample the mighty sounds of the “Women of Levitt!”
