In a city and industry where we can be pretty obsessed with self (self-promotion, self-growth, networking, climbing the proverbial ladder, etc.) it has become increasingly important to me that I use my gifts in music and storytelling to better the world around me rather than on bettering myself. As a core member of Tonality, I not only have that opportunity but that responsibility.
Our vision is always greater than ourselves. We keep a keen eye on service and the needs of others all while maintaining a high level of musicianship. Simply put, our work is in seeing, lifting, and connecting those that may feel disconnected. It is a true and noble mission that I’m honored to share.
Every concert hits on an emotional and raw level as we expose the most vulnerable parts of our world. Our rehearsals also have become a safe and brave space where fellow singers share vulnerable stories. Hearing Arie’s stories of her family's heroic escape during the Korean War, or Chloe’s story about her brother’s battle with homelessness, I am constantly in awe of my Tonality family and their bravery.
