Hi all, we haven’t posted in a while but are breaking our social media silence to use our platform to say the following: Black Lives Matter, and supporting BIPOC musicians and composers is essential.
We at Brass Chicks stand against racism in the music world and beyond.
Please consider supporting these organizations and others working to support #blacklivesmatter
Sphinx – to support their work transforming lives through the power of diversity in the arts. http://www.sphinxmusic.org/
Institute for Composer Diversity – This is a great organization compiling music by BIPOC composers for all instruments and ensemble sizes. Check out their spreadsheets to find music for yourself and your group. https://www.composerdiversity.com/
Music by Black Composers has compiled an incredible list of black composers to consider as well as a series of music for young musicians. https://www.musicbyblackcomposers.org/
