Pre-Conference Session: Diversity Matters

Sunday, June 26, 2022: 2:00 PM-3:30 PM
Meeting Room 16 (Austin Convention Center)

Session Type: Events
The duo of tuba and piano present events containing musical performances as well as opportunities to discuss diversity in many of its forms. Richard and Pamela have spent years dedicating themselves to their art as soloists and collaborators in traditional, classical settings.

Diversity Matters aims to accomplish something quite unusual: speaking to social issues through discussion and musical performance. As a duo, in addition to embodying obvious differences — gender, race, choice of instruments — they tackle questions regarding diversity of thought, opinion, and style, revealing how the collaborative process results in a unified experience for the listener.
