The Violin Channel: American Viola Society Creates a Database for Underrepresented Composers
The Violin Channel: American Viola Society Creates a Database for Underrepresented Composers. “The goal is to amplify the voices and music that have been overruled by white, Western Euro-centric, male narratives and compositions. Standard repertoire can be re-evaluated and examined through a more culturally inclusive and broad lens. The database information page offers plenty of information to consider when going into programming and performing a piece, or pieces, by a BIPOC composer.” Unfortunately this article doesn’t really get into what the database offers. Allow me to point you toward a September 2020 article in the Daily Wildcat with a more extensive background.
