Join us in experiencing the 3rd Cohort’s six world premieres born from the new initiative Mutual Mentorship for Musicians (M³), a revolutionary model of mentorship launched in June 2020 at the height of the pandemic. Each premiere will be followed by a Q&A with the audience about its creative process.
Created by co-founders Jen Shyu and Sara Serpa, M³ is a think tank for new ways to connect, collaborate, support, create, and empower women and non-binary musicians and those of other historically underrepresented gender identities in intersection with race, sexuality, or ability across generations in the US and worldwide.
