I joined Tonality because I wanted to be part of a choir that focuses on new music and a diversity of styles and perspectives. Tonality bridges many different musical worlds as a means to accomplish its mission rather than an end, and I wanted to contribute to and learn from that process.
Tonality is important because it is unique in how it connects its music-making to its mission of social justice. Tonality makes its values a central part of its programming and I hope to see more groups follow a similar model in the future.
I'm looking forward to listening and learning more about the issues of the criminal justice system during the music-making process for this concert. I hope to engage more with the community through Tonality since I moved to Los Angeles relatively recently.
