Music for Our Time: Voices of Justice

Host EJ Becker leads a conversation with Kansas City Symphony Music Director Michael Stern and world renowned clarinetist and Principal Clarinet of the New York Philharmonic, Anthony McGill. This episode features the music of American composer Richard Danielpour along with selections from Beethoven’s one and only opera, Fidelio.

In addition to the music itself, the conversation focuses on listening to the voices around us, in the pursuit of justice. McGill offers his profound understanding of the role that music can play in this difficult time, and extraordinary insight into his position as a leader on the American musical scene.
