Damkapellet is a music collective formed in 2016 that consists of 20 women with a background in classical music. They perform music written by female composers of all times, with the aim of supporting women on the world’s music scenes, and offering an alternative way of working in the classical music environment. Through learning about and challenging traditions, as well as creating awareness of power structures, Damkapellet seek artistic diversity and alternative ways to create and share music. Damkapellet experiments in various constellations such as orchestras, sound installations, smaller ensembles, solo, composition, improvisation, performances and gives talks on the project. In 2020 Damkapellet will have a new homebase and residence in Koncertkirken in Copenhagen, arranging their own concert series, festival and talks.
