Hosted by violinist, composer and Roth Distinguished Visiting Scholar Daniel Bernard Roumain, this compelling series features multidisciplinary artist-activists who have broken stereotypes and made history. Guest artists will discuss their experiences and the evolution of their work during this convergence of global health and social crises. Inspired by their conversation, Daniel and guests will create and share short performances together. Audience members are encouraged to submit their questions in the live chat.

Episode 2: Rachel Barton Pine

A leader in classical and contemporary music, Rachel's passion and conviction as a performer extends to her commitment to artists of color. She founded Music By Black Composers, a project supported by the Rachel Barton Pine Foundation, which commissions BIPOC (Black Indigenous, and People of Color) composers and addresses racial injustices in classical music. Lauded as "an exciting, boundary-defying performer" by the Washington Post, Pine has a prolific discography with 38 albums. She has appeared as a soloist with many prestigious ensembles including the Atlanta, Iceland and Vienna Symphonies; the Buffalo, Calgary, Rochester and Royal Philharmonics; the Louisville and Philadelphia Orchestras; and the Royal Scottish Philharmonic.

In this episode of "Who We Are with DBR," Rachel pairs excerpts from Daniel's 'Hip Hop Dances and Prayers' with Bach and discusses her approach to allyship as a white composer and philanthropist.
