.Exploring Equity & Justice Through Song

There sure are a lot of white guys in classical music. Bach: white guy. Beethoven: white guy. Mozart: pretty sure he was a white guy. As a corrective to this pasty predicament, pianist Ihang Lin and vocalist Von Bringhurst perform live on YouTube a selection of compositions entirely written by female, POC, or LGBTQ composers. The final concert in Community School of Music and Arts’ Community Concert Series, ‘Exploring Equity’ centers the works of composers like Lili Boulanger, Fanny Mendelssohn, Ana Carolina Sousa, and more. By the way, if Bringhurst’s name sounds familiar, maybe that’s because he sang on the Kingdom Hearts soundtrack.

‘Exploring Equity & Justice Through Song’
