Quote: “I’m grateful that the ALP gave me early exposure and perspectives into the “ecosystem” in which our art lives and thrives. As artists — in addition to the utmost task of improving and maintaining our artistic capacities — it’s also crucial to develop new pathways to communicate what we do to others. The classes and internship though ALP definitely got the wheels turning. In my current role running a chamber music series, I’m dealing with grants, operations, programming, collaborations…which in the end, enables an outlet that I love for music-making, and I think has turned into something meaningful for the community we serve.”
