Making Waves is a curated anthology of commissions written by women for solo and chamber flute. Each piece will include voice in some way to highlight the composers' stories and inspirations, from mother-daughter relationships to the women who made the first moon landing possible.
I am collaborating with seven composers over the next several years - Ashi Day, Isabel Lepanto Gleicher, Shara Lunon, Niloufar Nourbakhsh, Judith Shatin, Annika K. Socolofsky and Pamela Z. Their works are being premiered in a 3-year concert series from 2023-2025, culminating in an album recording and full anthology performance.
Harford Community College is hosting the first premiere of this series on May 7 at 3:00 PM on their Sunday Afternoon Concert Series. New works by Isabel Lepanto Gleicher and Shara Lunon are being featured on this program.
I want audiences to experience music written by women, performed by women and celebrated by everyone. But, I need your help to make this possible! I have a fundraising goal of $15,000, and all donations will go directly towards composer commission fees, totaling $35,000. Take a look at the fun perks I'm offering, and please join me in Making Waves!
Crowdfunding has officially launched! All launch-day backers receive a Making Waves tote bag!
I am so grateful for your support! Thank you!
