Music for the Soul

In 2020, Clipper Erickson conceived a way to continue his mission of presenting the works of under-represented composers in the COVID-19 world by launching a new concert series: Music for the Soul.  Each program links works by composers of color and women with great masterpieces of the past, and allows audiences the opportunity to experience these works in a hybrid format.  Erickson also invites viewers to engage directly with the performers, allowing them an opportunity to delve deeper into the works they hear.
