I’ve been a fan of her music for almost two decades now. I think Alex Ross has written an interesting piece for the Guardian about some of her favorite pieces of music. From Mahler to Steve Reich to Public Enemy… I love the diversity in her library.

Recently I listened to an NPR classical music podcast call Conducting Business. The subject of that talk was related to my blog post Faces At Concerts.
During the podcast the host Naomi Lewin facilitated a group discussion about the diversity of both audiences and members of major symphony orchestras in the United States. I’m glad to hear that these kinds of conversations are happening in public forums and encourage many to listen to the podcast American Orchestras Grapples With Lack of Diversity.
