On this week’s episode of Sounds Classical, Kristina and LaRob sit down for an informal Listening Party with composer, violinist, and CSO Mead Composer in Residence, Jessie Montgomery. She shares her musical inspirations and gives some insight into the life of a composer. She also shares music she wishes she composed herself and talks with us about the use of the term “classical” in the 21st century!
