Antiracism in the Arts with Aaron Grad and Britt East

Join Aaron Grad, musician and composer and Britt East, Vice President of EMS Board of Directors for an illuminating conversation about creating truly integrated arts experiences for people from all walks of life. It’s critical for us as white people to surface issues of race while we find ways we can help equalize power, and why traditional arts organizations must summon the courage to fundamentally rethink their programming and business models if they want to survive and thrive. Aaron also walks us through the genesis of his upcoming work, Many Messiahs, in which he reframes Handel’s masterpiece as a collective call for justice.

Early Music Seattle presents, For All Our Sisters, featuring music composed by Aaron Grad, June 12 at Town Hall Seattle. Tickets and information here.
