‘Cellist Amanda Gookin presents, “Forward Music Project.” From Amanda:
“The mission behind The Forward Music Project is driven by social justice for women. We musicians, now more than ever, have an incredible ability to effect change in our communities. The composers were commissioned to write a piece based on their personal story or a women’s issue they wish to highlight. The pieces are stylistically contrasting and represent the vast definition of what it means to be a woman. The themes of these pieces range from empowerment and issues of the LGBTQ+ community, to reproductive rights, and violence against women.”
She will premiere my solo piece for ‘cello, “Stolen.” The evening will also feature projections by Katy Tucker.
