Remembering composer Elinor Remick Warren
The Hampsong Foundation is committed to supporting contemporary American composers and the legacies of composers who had a passion for American song. One of these composers was Elinor Remick Warren (1900-1991), described as “the only woman among the group of prominent American neo-romanticists that includes Howard Hanson, Samuel Barber and Gian Carlo Menotti” (Ammer, Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians).
We gratefully recognize the generous support of the Elinor Remick Warren Society in our collective mandate to invigorate the study and performance of American classic song.
In collaboration with the Elinor Remick Warren Society, the Hampsong Foundation seeks to promote the music of Remick Warren through performances, radio broadcasts, and publications.
