Halacha - women performing
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: Yes, according to the letter of the law. The prohibition against hearing women sing is specific to hearing the voice and not other music a woman may produce. However, it is not necessarily appropriate for a woman to be the focus of a man's attention, as she would be when performing a piano concert. Therefore, while it is not forbidden, I wouldn't recommend it if the woman will be sitting on a stage where everyone is staring at her for the duration of the recital.
