This Giving Tuesday, we invite you to question the homogeneity of modern classical music. African-Americans and Latinx represent barely 4% of American orchestras. Why is this? And how can we change the look of the orchestras of the future?
Student musicians from varying backgrounds will share diverse perspectives on finding a place in classical music. Their stories will be interspersed with musical performances that prove: while opportunity may not be equally distributed, talent definitely is.
After the discussion, join us for a fundraiser benefiting Merit School of Music and their mission to remove barriers to high-quality music education. Cocktails, tacos, and an instrument drive, all in Chicago Athletic Association Hotel’s holiday pop-up bar.
Reserve your tickets here.
