In 1580 in Ferrara, Italy, an ensemble of professional female singers–probably the first one of their gender–became renowned for their technical and artistic virtuosity. This ensemble, the 'Concerto delle Donne', performed formal concerts for members of the inner circle of the Ferrara court and important visitors, and revolutionized the role of women in professional music.
