Alternative Voices

In this first edition of Alternative Voices the focus is on the US: there are posts about the composer Angélica Negrón and New York Public Radio’s New Sounds Radio.

Future editions will feature posts on other composers, performers and pieces from around the world as well as teachers and producers.
