S1. C4. UPCOMING EPISODES
March – May 2021
The Soundweavers cast is excited to announce that our fourth cycle will feature Pegasus Early Music, Kalia Vandever, Akropolis Quintet, and the Amatis Trio!
In episode 16, Rosy and Blaire chat with lutenist Deb Fox of Pegasus Early Music about the process of “curating” both repertoire and performers for each concert; addressing systemic oppression within an early music tradition that is largely written by white, male, Christian, and European composers; and working with a large roster of international performers.
The next episode features freelance jazz trombonist and composer Kalia Vandever discussing the process of developing, funding, recording, and then marketing her album In Bloom; balancing a busy performance schedule to allow time for composing; her work with the Herbie Hancock Institute’s Peer-to-Peer Program; and tools and methods for providing safe, supportive, and equitable environments for women in professional and educational spheres.
In episode 18, Kari and Matt Landry of the Akropolis Quintet join us to talk about developing, curating, and selling repertoire for the reed quintet, a new type of chamber ensemble; their many educational initiatives that range from interactive education programs for elementary students to business intensives for emerging musicians and ensembles; and the importance of organizational transparency for not-for-profit ensembles.
Rosy and Adam chat with the Amatis Trio in episode 19 about their experience navigating the music world in the face of declining international cooperation; conceptualizing and presenting multi-disciplinary projects with an Egyptian soprano, a chocolatier, and laser lights; and connecting with audiences in concert halls and in train stations.
