Ahead of her appearance at Ravinia this week, we sat down to talk with Lara Downes about her efforts to broaden the classical canon,  her first introduction to Black composers like Florence Price and Margaret Bonds, and why she loves to work with Rachel Barton Pine.

WFMT will broadcast Lara Downes' September 7, 2021 Ravinia performance on September 27, 2021, at 8:00 pm.
