2014 Update

Near the end of my 11th Doctoral course for Business Marketing, I am closer to graduation than ever before. As I look back over the past two years, much progress has been made.  I’m not situated in Atlanta, GA, where I live with my daughter, Mimi Johnson, CEO of www.mjtvnetwork.info, which has several shows in production. On May 21, I will co-host one of three shows in a series entitled Amazing Musicwomen with vocal musician Sandi Blair.

Finally, we encourage everyone to nominate a woman musician/composer for the prestigious NEA Jazz Master Award for 2015. You can do this at http://arts.gov/honors/jazz

Two Important Videos

This first video is an interview by Al Carter-bey, radio DJ at WHPK 88.5 FM in Chicago with Joan Cartwright on the status of women musicians in the U.S.A.

The second video is an interview on KCBS with trumpeter Ellen Seeling on the rally against the all-male Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra that pays each of its members $100,000 annually, funded by governmental agencies like the National Endowment of the Arts (NEA).

Your comments are welcome. To help us promote women musicians, join our non-profit organization that is global. You do not need to be a musician to join us at http://www.wijsf.org.
