About last night.... @boulangerinitiative is an incredible project started by our friends @colgateviolin and @joyleilani, who curated #wocofest (women composers), a three day celebration of female composers and many many female artists. It was an honor to be a part of this launch fest and share the music of Hildegard von Bingen, @skymacklay, Nina C. Young, @carolineadelaideshaw, Katie Balch, and @gabriella.coati. Not only that, we got to be in the same room with some of the most fierce women in our field! Thank you for creating this space Laura and Joy -- what an unforgettable evening! Check out their @washingtonpost article about why their initiative is so necessary in this world, link in bio.
