Lara Downes discusses 'Holes in the Sky' with classical radio
Lara Downes new album, Holes in the Sky, on Portrait / Sony Masterworks label is a genre-fluid collection of music written and performed by today's leading female artists, celebrating the contributions of phenomenal women to the past, present, and future of American music. The album tells the story of what women and girls can contribute to the world when they are given a chance - their dreams can make holes in the sky. Lara collaborates with an extraordinary multi-generational group of female guest artists on this album, including the iconic singer / songwriter Judy Collins, boundary-breaking violinist Rachel Barton Pine, pianist Simone Dinnerstein, fast-rising cellist Ifetayo Ali-Landing, and the urban youth vocal ensemble Musicality.
In conjunction with the release, LD sat down with Classical Radio Networks and Stations for back to back sessions today May 14, and tomorrow May 15, to discuss the particulars.
