Each day, the website Composers Circle profiles one composer and one piece of music.

On June 6, the site featured composer Barbara Harbach, professor of music at the University of Missouri–St. Louis, and her extraordinary orchestral music, specifically highlighting her piece “One of Ours – a Cather Symphony” performed by the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Harbach has a large catalog of works, including symphonies, operas, string orchestras, musicals, works for chamber ensembles, film scores, modern ballets, pieces for organ, harpsichord and piano; choral anthems; and many arrangements for brass and organ of various Baroque works. She is also involved in the research, editing, publication and recording of manuscripts of 18th century keyboard composers, as well as historical and contemporary women composers.

Harbach serves as editor of the WomenArts Quarterly Journal.
