Over at The Takoma Park Newsletter, I have a piece on Boulanger Initiative.
Here’s the first paragraph:
Born in Takoma Park, Boulanger Initiative’s mission is to advocate for women and gender-marginalized composers. According to its mission statement, the nonprofit promotes “music composed by women through performance, education, research, consulting, and commissions.” According to Boulanger Initiative Co-founder and Executive Director Laura Colgate, the name honors two paragons in the world of classical music. The Boulangers were from France. “We wanted to bring more recognition to the two sisters and honor them by using their name,” she said.
