This concert features predominantly new music by living female composers. My theme stems from my experience and realizations throughout the pandemic. I realized that my music education had been steeped in white, male supremacy, and until this year, I never thought to question it. It is important to me when programming recitals now and in the future that I look beyond the typical classical canon and program music composed for TODAY'S audience. 


It is essential that my audience grab the message and relate to it immediately in 2021 and beyond. Who is today's audience? They are bold, colorful, and full of dimension and self-expression. My mission is to be a performer that meets that market and helps in the facilitation of diversity in classical music rather than upholding the outdated standards of yesteryear.

To pursue: to go after, to seek, to continue. Whether or not we realize it, we all have short-term and long-term aspirations in life. We chase after our dreams no matter how extraordinary.
