Meet Patrick Chamberlain, VP for artistic administration at the Aspen Music Festival and School
Every generation has had a culling process where the cream of the musical crop rises to the top.
Composers of color and women composers have historically not been a part of that process, which begins when their works actually get performed.
However, Patrick Chamberlain asserts that the Aspen Music Festival and School is consciously working to correct the situation.
As the new vice president for artistic administration at the festival and school, Chamberlain is making it his business to provide the widest possible range of musical experiences.
