"Whenever people buy a ticket to a concert, they're committing to a shared experience..." Jessie Montgomery reflects. The acclaimed composer, violinist, and educator spoke with WFMT general manager George Preston in the latest installment of the Classical Conversations series.

To an absorbed virtual audience, Montgomery, the Mead Composer-in-Residence designate of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, spoke live about her background in music, her compositional process and inspiration, and how she thinks music can bring us — and keep us — together.
