To mark International Women's Day, the Royal College of Music (RCM) is delighted to present a poetry recital in celebration of female poets. 

This specially curated film of poetry and music presents a beautiful range of verse by female poets covering over two centuries, from countries and cultures spanning Korea, Sweden, China, France, Japan, Australia, Denmark and England.

'HOPE' is the central theme of these performances, as talented RCM students also reflect and recite original works accompanied by musical compositions. This insightful and powerful film, celebrating International Women's Day is introduced by Professor Audrey Hyland, and includes music by Professor Errollyn Wallen and RCM alumna, Elizabeth Machonchy.
