Sylvia Foodim Glickman (1932 - January 16, 2006) was a pianist, composer, teacher, and prominent promoter of music by women composers.

Glickman grew up in New York City, where her mother enrolled her in music school at the age of 3. She graduated from the High School of Music and Art in 1950 (now the Fiorello H.marker LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Artsmarker). She earned a bachelor's degree in 1954 from the Juilliard School of Musicmarker, where she also received a master's degree in 1955 in piano performance. She studied at the Royal Academy of Musicmarker in London on a Fulbright scholarship.

She married Harvey Glickman, a political science professor, in 1956.

Mrs. Glickman taught piano at the New England Conservatory of Music, Haverford College, Princeton University, and Franklin and Marshall College.

According to her obituary in The Philadelphia Inquirer, in 1988 she founded Hildegard Press, named for 12th-century composer Hildegard of Bingen.

"Mrs. Glickman was on a mission to unearth female composers who had gone unnoticed in music history. She began churning out catalogs by the hundreds. The company now distributes internationally through Presser Music.

"In 1991, she was coeditor with Martha Schleifer of a 12-volume reference, Women Composers: Music through the Ages. She finished the project before her death. Eight volumes have been published by Boston-based Gale Group. The four remaining volumes are still to be published."
