Celebrate the Influence of Nadia Boulanger

The influence of French composer, conductor, and teacher Nadia Boulanger and her family stretched through the musical world. This journey through the music of the lives she changed—her students, friends, and family—is led by the charismatic American conductor Joshua Weilerstein.

Did You Know...
George Walker, a student of Nadia Boulanger, was the first African-American composer to earn a Pulitzer Prize. In addition to the Pulitzer Prize for composition in 1996, he earned dozens of composition awards and prizes including Guggenheim, Rockefeller, and Fulbright fellowships.

In her brief 24 years of life, Lili Boulanger composed more than 50 pieces for a combination of voice, piano, orchestra, and solo instruments. During the course of her short but prominent career, she was an icon of the entrance of women into French professional society in the early part of the 20th century. The Boulanger family was something like musical aristocracy in 19th-century Paris.
