Feminine Fusion

S07 Ep15: Bold and Brassy, Part 4


“Be bold enough to use your voice, brave enough to listen to your heart, and strong enough to live the life you have always imagined.”  – Anonymous


Despite our best efforts, there is still a gender bias for aspiring brass players.  One way to overcome this bias is simply by visibility – seeing women in roles that are unexpected, and make aspiring musicians realize they can follow that same path.
