A Statement for Music During This Time


In the most difficult times, music uplifts us by taking our hearts to places beyond words. As a music director, conductor and educator, it is my commitment to use all my skills and experience to keep music alive. I will work as hard as possible to keep musicians employed, to inspire choirs safely in virtual projects, and to bring audiences programs that are beautiful and reflective of the present day. I am so proud of the Northwestern School of Music, the Apollo Chorus of Chicago, the Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra, the Elmhurst Symphony Orchestra, and so many other organizations for the many adaptations and innovations that have kept us connected, and kept music flowing to our communities.
