So glad i discovered this beautiful piece. I know music is no bandaid for the injustice in this country, however white supremacy can be dismantled in all areas of society.
Classical music to begin with is an exclusive and a heavily inaccessible art form. Not to mention, the music we glorify is 99% written by dead white males. How can we be progressive, when this art form is stuck in the 17-19th century??
I’m calling on all musicians to explore new music. Specifically from: our living composers, female composers, black, asian, native american composers, etc!! As performers we have a duty to share music. Let’s start sharing music that reflects the progress that we have made as a society.
