Sit back, relax and join us for a conversion of intrigue and delight as we get to know community leaders and musical superheroes Scott Yoo & Alice Dade. In addition to being world class musicians, the couple has lent their talents to the renowned PBS series Now Hear This, the first show about classical music on American prime time TV in 50 years.
Music has the ability to bring people together, revel in shared experiences, and can help us survive the tremendous tumult of this year. Guided by the legendary Sandi Sigurdson, our conversation will explore the extraordinary healing power of music and the business that sustains art and culture.
You don’t want to miss this opportunity to connect with Scott and Alice as they join us via Zoom from their home in Missouri — and maybe hear a live performance as well.
