Tune in for another exciting episode of The Graduates as we speak with Ursula Kwong-Brown about soprano and orchestra music composition with an emphasis in new media. Ursula is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Music. In the interview, Ursula talks about how she became a pianist, a composer, and how she incorporates magnets and electronics in performances to create unique sounds for her new media studies. Ursula also speaks about what it is like to be a woman in the music world and how early child music literacy and greater access can improve representation in the adult academic music community.
