Young Musicians Innovation Challenge Awardees Launch New Podcast

July 22, 2021
Guitarist Heather Wang & Violinist Amy Baskurt

The Whole Note: Voices of Chamber

A new podcast, The Whole Note: Voices of Chamber has been launched by Julliard Pre-College students Amy Baskurt and Heather Wang, with the support of a grant from CMS as awardees of the inaugural Young Musicians Innovation Challange.

In their own words:

Our mission for this podcast is to learn how culture and diversity impact chamber groups and about the role of resilience in their lives. It is essential to our program to feature musicians from an array of cultures, upbringings, and communities.

Our podcast wishes to explore more about chamber groups’ stories, unique experiences, heritages, struggles, and their accomplishments, all of which connect to the importance of education and community. By reaching out to diverse groups of chamber musicians, we wish to not only engage in learning how culture impacts the arts, but also provide enrichment to a broad audience with meaningful discussions. In addition to featuring musicians, this project will include short segments of chamber music in a variety of genres.

The ensemble was mentored by CMS cellist Dmitri Atapine and CMS Global Council Member Morris Rossabi.
