Vocalist and WQXR host Helga Davis and composers Courtney Bryan and Shelley Washington join Face the Music at National Sawdust for a program inspired by the 2016 film Hidden Figures. The program includes Bryan’s Yet Unheard, inspired by the tragic death of Sandra Bland, plus Washington’s A Kind of Lung and music by Mazz Swift.

Kaufman Music Center’s 100+ member Face the Music is the country’s only teen program dedicated to studying and performing post-genre music by trailblazing contemporary composers. Praised for “stunning performances” by the New York Times, Face the Music features a collection of ensembles including a chamber orchestra, a jazz big-band, an improvisation collective, string quartets and mixed chamber-ensembles, all dedicated to studying and performing experimental, new-classical, new-jazz and avant-garde music written exclusively by living composers.
