ALLOWING UNDISCOVERED MUSIC TO FIND THE RECOGNITION IT DESERVES
As a global 501c3 nonprofit music organization specializing in classical music and other forms of performing arts, we are committed to facilitating high-quality experiences and events in theaters and venues in North America, Europe, and other world stages. Focusing on less well-known and contemporary music, we engage only top-caliber talents to deliver superior-level results and presentation of the music.
Throughout history, women's contributions to classical music composition have often been overlooked. However, the landscape is changing as contemporary female composers are breaking through barriers and reshaping the narrative of a traditionally male-dominated field.
As the spotlight on women composers grows brighter, it's crucial to recognize and celebrate their contributions. Their diverse perspectives and innovative approaches to composition enrich the world of music, demonstrating that talent knows no gender boundaries. Supporting and acknowledging contemporary female composers are crucial steps toward a more equitable and vibrant musical landscape.
Our festival's first season will feature seven female composers and their talented ten operas, which are composed in various styles.
In every struggle arises an opportunity to bring people together to a new world that strikes and captivates the souls at just the right moment. The international festival of contemporary American classical music, “Spread New Music to the World,” organized by American nonprofit music organization Lyrica Classic Entertainment, and envisioned by its artistic director and internationally acclaimed operatic soprano Yulia Petrachuk, delivered just that – a cultural contribution amid tumulus times of unrest between countries where music can no longer find its way across borders.
“I would like to express my deepest appreciation and gratitude to Lyrica Classic Entertainment for the extraordinary productions of several concerts with new music by American composers in Russia. From the composer's perspective, I can attest that the presentations of my works in those concerts were among the best I have ever had.”

Sergei Prokofiev was easily one the most influential composers of the 20th century. His compositions have been played in the United States more than the works of any other composer from the past one hundred years, save Richard Strauss. However, his works were often constrained by external political circumstances. While before and after WWII, Prokofiev found his output restricted by the Zhdanov doctrine, the years of 1939 through 1945 allowed him to compose uninhibited by the aesthetic doctrines of the Soviet government. His experiments with formalism and atonality during these years would prove influential on subsequent generations of composers, both Russian and American.
