Unfortunately due to the coronavirus, Oratorio for Living Things has been POSTPONED.
I have absolutely loved working as the music assistant for this cosmic and timely musical work and cannot wait until we get back to it. Thank you to everyone at Ars Nova for taking great care of us during these wild times!
Participating as the music assistant for BCEFA Red Bucket Follies was so inspiring. I feel grateful to have been a part of this giant undertaking and honored to be in the same room as all of these wildly talented artists who made their Broadway debuts!

"MAESTRA MUSIC, INC. was founded by composer/lyricist and music director Georgia Stitt to give support, visibility, and community to the women who make the music in the musical theater industry. Since women are under-represented in musical theater, our membership is made up of female-identifying, non-binary and gender non-conforming composers, music directors, orchestrators, arrangers, copyists, rehearsal pianists and other musicians. The organization’s initiatives include monthly educational seminars, mentorship programs, technical skills workshops, networking events, and online resources and partnerships that aim to promote equality of opportunity and to address the many historical disadvantages and practices that have limited women composers and musicians in the musical theater."
