Episode 6: I Am Like a Snowball
DMA student Emma Gierszal interviews Laura Lentz, professional flutist and artistic director of the modern chamber quintet fivebyfive, about their upcoming project – For the Future: The Susan B. Anthony Historic District (Music, Art, and Action). The two discuss the genesis of the event, what went into planning for such an event – especially during COVID – and ultimately focus on why it’s important to be engaged in your community as an artist.

Correction: In the episode, we said that Laura moved to Italy to teach English and then met her husband. In fact, they met in Wisconsin and then Laura moved back to Rome with her husband for love! We apologize for the error.
