“Creativity is an inherent human quality of the highest order.  When we create, we become more than the sum of our parts.” – Yanni

When a group of talented musicians come together as a whole, the music they play is elevated to an entirely new level.  On this episode, you’ll hear a diverse array of ensembles and styles, all with one thing in common:  each ensemble represents a group of women who have come together to breathe life into the music.
