One of the featured elements of Carnegie Hall's "Voices of Hope" Festival taking place this month is "In Response," a showcase of songs written by participants in its Weill Music Institute programs, who include students, mothers in its Lullaby project, and inmates in New York's correctional system, reflecting emotions and reactions stemming from the social protests and pandemic shut-down of the past year. A Tempo this Saturday (4/24 at 7 pm) features interviews with two of the songwriters - music educator Briony Price and Uncommon Collegiate Charter High School senior Ruth Kendall - as well as with Joanna Massey, Carnegie Hall's Director of Learning and Engagement, and Aaron Siegel, Director of Special Projects.
