In the next several months, I will be revitalizing my webpage for our return to active music-making. Today, I have added a statement conceived during our time in artistic "lockdown" that reflects my artistic efforts in the context of our times. I welcome your thoughts, suggestions, and ideas!
I am a musician, educator, and scholar of privilege. As a trumpet performer and conductor, I promote the artistic activities of marginalized musicians through performance, education, and research. As a curator of past musical works and contemporary artists of privilege, I represent their music in context and juxtaposition of present musical experiences. Through my efforted and honed talents, I nurture diversity, inclusivity, and belonging in my artistic, musical, and educational activities.
Lone Toad Music LLC promotes creativity through music performance, education, and scholarship.
