“Appreciation is a wonderful thing.  It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.”  – Voltaire


One doesn’t need to be a musician to be inspirational.  On this episode of Feminine Fusion, we hear from composers who looked to the women in their lives for inspiration, and dedicated works to them.  It’s music from Bach and Beethoven, to Locklair and Beeler.
