The critically acclaimed podcast TRILLOQUY built to decolonize the traditional definitions and conversations surrounding classical music is hosted by Garrett McQueen and Scott Blankenship, and has been called "required listening for industry leaders and listeners alike" by the New York Times.
Pulitzer Prize-winner Jennifer Higdon is one of America’s busiest composers, and her catalogue is even more vast than many people realize. She joins Garrett (49:00) to talk about the Pulitzer win, her late brother, and the influence of East Tennessee on her musical identity.
Scott unpacks “The Price of Luck” and highlights a one-man band; Garrett celebrates Tower of Power and offers a critical look on a historic conductor hire, and the guys spend the finale raising awareness about the potential connections between shows of equity and white supremacist organizations.
