Livestream No. 4: Dec. 5
The fourth livestream will be Dec. 5. I don’t know 100% what I will play yet, but I would like to include some works by French composers Mel Bonis and Cecile Chaminade, and English composer Ethel Smyth. There may be several premieres on the program as well, more info TBA!
There is enough unknown repertoire by women, nonbinary composers, and nonwhite composers to fill several lifetimes.
