Lilburn Lecture — Wide blows our banner: How far have women composers in New Zealand come since Suffrage?

This year’s Lilburn Lecture sees acclaimed composer Eve de Castro-Robinson asking how much progress women composers in New Zealand have made since the granting of equal voting rights 125 years ago.

Reflecting on changes in New Zealand’s musical and socio-political culture, de Castro-Robinson considers her own journey as a female composer from the mid-1980s onward.

About the speaker:
Eve de Castro-Robinson is one of New Zealand’s foremost composers, whose works have been widely performed. She has made many contributions to New Zealand music, including as a trustee of SOUNZ and is currently Associate Professor in Composition at the University of Auckland.

The annual Lilburn Lectures are a collaboration between the Lilburn Trust and the Alexander Turnbull Library.
