In partnership with Lincoln Center, NPR Music presents Turning the Tables: the 150 Greatest Albums Made by Women, a celebration of the most outstanding women recording artists of our time.
Determined by a select group of women writers, producers, hosts and DJs from throughout the NPR ecosystem, the list from which you will hear songs tonight represents a new way of thinking about popular music, with women and their works at the center. From Joni Mitchell and Nina Simone to Britney Spears, albums by these women have shaped our consciousness and told our histories. Tonight celebrates that legacy.
This is the first of four live collaborations between NPR Music and Lincoln Center as part of the year-long, multi-platform Turning the Tables project.
Moderated by NPR Music’s Ann Powers (Critic and Correspondent, NPR Music)
with panelists Alison Fensterstock (Contributor, NPR Music), Kiana Fitzgerald (Contributor, NPR Music), Rita Houston (Program Director, WFUV), Paula Mejia (Contributor, NPR Music), Talia Schlanger (Host and Radio Producer of World Cafe for WXPN and NPR Music), Maria Sherman (Contributor, NPR Music), Laura Snapes (Contributor, NPR Music), Jill Sternheimer (Director of Public Programming, Lincoln Center), and Anastasia Tsioulcas (Reporter, NPR Music)
