Part V: Mar. 23, 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. PST -  LBGTQIA+ discrimination

Part VI: Apr. 13, 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. PST - paths forward

“Ewell provokes with a higher purpose: he is goading a classical culture that awards the vast majority of performances to a tight circle of superstars, shutting out female and nonwhite composers who, until the mid-twentieth century, had little chance of making a career.” – Alex Ross in the New Yorker, 9/14/20
