Matthew Lewis


Why did you join Tonality?

I joined Tonality to sing great music with great singers who are open-minded to compassionate activism regarding the myriad of issues that plague humanity and the world in general.

Why do you feel a group like this is important?

Tonality is important because people coming from all over to make beauty and to share illuminating stories about the human condition is important. Also, you do not often hear these types of issues brought up in the world of choral music, so it’s good to live in that space.

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

The emotional intensity of Kalief Browder has stuck with me ever since we sang that piece. To sing a wailing song in response to someone’s unjustified premature death feels right. Not necessarily good, but right.
