More Info:

Palaver Strings' debut album Ready or Not celebrates the work of female composers from the Renaissance to the present day. In selecting the pieces for this album, the ensemble looked both within and beyond the classical tradition and string orchestra medium for diverse voices, compelling stories, and music that speaks to the rich palette of human emotions. These selections represent just the tip of the iceberg: women's creative visions have always been here, whether the concert hall was ready or not. Palaver Strings is a musician-led string ensemble and nonprofit organization based in Portland, ME. Our mission is to strengthen and inspire community through music. In our musician-led model, Palaver's musicians share artistic and administrative leadership, guided by a passion for engaging new audiences, addressing social justice issues, and amplifying underrepresented voices. Equally committed to performance and education, Palaver presents a full season of live performances and serves over 325 students each year through the Palaver Music Center in Portland.
