Why did you join Tonality?

I want to use my talents and my unique perspective to bring awareness to issues that matter to me. I am particularly interested in the housing/homelessness crisis, new urbanism, issues affecting the queer community, and the ongoing genocide of the Palestinian people.

Why do you feel a group like this is important?

Diversity promotes stability. The more distinct perspectives to which we have access, the better our collective understanding becomes. That is our greatest strength.

What is a particular moment you remember from singing in a Tonality concert?

The stories are always the most memorable part of any Tonality concert. Whether it's folks from the audience, folks from the particular community that the concert is highlighting, or Tonality members ourselves, the inherent vulnerability in sharing one's truth brings us closer together in mutual understanding and respect.
