Our Commitment to Diversity and Equality
Berks Sinfonietta recognizes the pressing struggles of race and gender inequality in our country. Our art is classical music, long the bastion of “dead white men.” The way we change that paradigm is through our music-making, by giving equal programming to equal pens and voices.
We are committed to programming music by female, non-white, and living composers on a regular equal basis. In doing so, we not only elevate the contributions of so many underperformed composers, but we also continue to introduce audiences to the breadth and beauty of the classical genre.
