The National Women's Theater Festival will be hosting Dr. Natalie Groom, Affiliate Artist of Clarinet at UMBC, and Jennifer Piazza-Pick, Assistant Professor of Voice at Queens University of Charlotte, (the Whistling Hens duo) at their annual festival at the University of North Carolina. Dr. Groom's presentation is Friday July 29 at 10am and features composer Ashi Day in their presentation of "The Good Kind of Blurred Lines: Infusing Classical Music and Art Song with Theater."
The National Women's Theatre Festival (NWTF) formed in 2016 to address gender disparity on & off stages across North Carolina stages. Since then, they've been a catalyst for change in the gender parity movement, both locally and nationally. Their annual Festival is the nation's largest symposium on gender in theatre and provides a platform for amplifying and celebrating the contributions of women, non-binary, TGNC, and other under-represented gender artists in the field.
