Why did you join Tonality?

I joined Tonality to make a statement, to amplify the voices of my peers, and to foster change in the choral community.

Why do you feel a group like this is important?

The community needs to see that there are people who care about their stories and their experiences. There is so little accessibility in the arts, we can offer more communities the opportunity to tell their story.

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

Singing in the mental health concert in May of 2018, listening to my friends share their personal battles with mental illness. I wept my way through the concert and never felt more safe or understood.
