Why did you join Tonality?

I joined Tonality to be a part of group of like-minded, passionate individuals who speak towards important issues today and continuously strive to make choral music and our society a more equitable place for all.

Why do you feel a group like this is important?

Tonality has always uplifted the voices of marginalized communities and has given a face to their stories so that they are told authentically to a larger audience. Especially today, a group like Tonality and their mission statement has never been more important.

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

One moment that will always remain with me is singing in my first Tonality concert last season called “Put Your Guns Down”. The impactful repertoire coupled with the stories told by members of the community made that evening so impactful and special for both the performers and audience. Also shoutout to the Tiesto gig this past September!
