Here is the talk I gave at TEDxBrookings in February, titled “Reinventing Classical Music for a Modern Era.” It includes a performance of a piece by Jay Batzner for glissando flute.

New Piece

National Women’s Studies Association Conference

I’m looking forward to presenting at a roundtable discussion titled “For the Sounds That Move Us All: Re-envisioning Feminist Action for Twenty-First Century Musicians” at the National Women’s Studies Association conference in November. I’ll be co-presenting with several fantastic colleagues, and it should be an excellent discussion.
