“People are always good company when they are doing what they really enjoy.”  – Samuel Butler

 

On this episode, you’ll hear music from four all-female ensembles who are pushing the envelope when it comes to the idea of presenting classical works.  Their music crosses genres, and their live performances bring a fresh perspective to the audience.
