The Ebell of Los Angeles has been empowering women since its founding in 1894, inspired by Dr. Adrian Ebell, an early believer in women’s education in the arts and sciences. By 1927, it was the largest women’s club in the United States. The club's Grand Salon lends both grandeur and intimacy to a program of chamber music by female composers, performed by the finest chamber music artists of their generation. Enjoy Clara Schumann’s (1819-1896) masterful Piano Trio (in g, Op. 17), Louise Farrenc’s (1804-1875) buoyant and lyrical Piano Quintet (No. 2, Op. 31) and Amy Beach’s (1867-1944) lushly romantic Piano Quintet (in f-sharp, Op. 67).
