Episode No. 12: Amplify Female Composers   

In the midst of the COVID pandemic, acclaimed organists and church musicians Janet Yieh and Carolyn Craig collaborated in founding AMPLIFY Female Composers – a project dedicated to promoting music written by female composers. As a preview for their spring 2021 offering – a virtual Stations of the Cross featuring organists playing solemn meditations – Janet and Carolyn join host David Ball to introduce our listeners to this important project. They’ll be highlighting some beautiful tracks both from their 2020 Virtual Advent Calendar; and, the upcoming Stations of the Cross. These are featuring performances by church musicians and choirs across the United States, England, and even here in California {from both San Diego native Chelsea Chen and Cathedral Organist David Ball on the mighty Walker organ of Christ Cathedral}.
