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.
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.
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.
