Lili Boulanger

b. 1893, Paris; d. 1918, Mézy, France

Lili Boulanger, a French performer and composer, was the first woman to win the Prix de Rome, for the cantata Faust et Hélène, in 1913. Though she suffered from poor health for most of her short life, she produced many innovative and imaginative choral and instrumental compositions. After the outbreak of World War I, Boulanger established the Comité Franco-Américain du Conservatoire National in Paris, to provide material and moral support to musician soldiers.
