OUR VISION

The Association of Swedish Women Composers (Kvinnlig Anhopning av Svenska Tonsättare – KVAST) is a nonprofit organization that works to bring music by women composers to a wider audience: in concert halls, on experimental stages, in auditoriums and musical venues of all kinds, throughout Sweden and around the world. The more artists’ voices we hear, the richer our musical culture!

THE REPERTOIRE BANK
Find music by women composers. You can search by genre, instrumentation, title, or duration. We are continually expanding our database (which is already one of the most extensive in the world).
COMPOSERS
Our website brings together women composers from past and present, near and far. You can browse, search, or listen to samples of a wide variety of orchestral and chamber music, including electronic and live electronic music, choral works, and opera.
STATISTICS
Who has composed the music performed by Swedish music institutions? To find out the answer Föreningen Svenska Tonsättare (FST) and Female Association of Women Composers (KVAST) has examined the repertoire at 23 music and opera institutions. Read the report!
