Last fall, pianist Conrad Tao released his highly political album, American Rage. Its themes of social justice and compassion resonate more strongly than ever today. The four tracks: Which Side Are You On?; Copland Piano Sonata; Compassion; and Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues, all speak of the plight of workers and others who have been treated unjustly in America.

Conrad talks with Chris Mohr about his music, racism, and his new relationship with his audience in the world of virtual performances.
