Description: Get With the Program: A Guide to Musical Analysis and Storytelling, including Archival Comparisons examines the process from the page to performance. This exhibit is described in first-person, so you can get an idea of what I was thinking while I was working with the scores and with the choir, Beyond Measure. As this project was completed during a time where making music and connecting with people felt nearly impossible, this work is something that I will hold dear for the rest of my life. Whether you interact with this exhibit the minute it debuts or in 10 years, I hope you find something here that resonates, as it’s my belief that true connection through art is not always time-bound. I invite you to interact with my artist statement, connect with ULS materials, study the score, watch some rehearsal footage, read an interview (or three), and enjoy a filmed performance in Schenley Park.
