Season 1, Episode 2: Sara Davis Buechner

In today’s episode, Sara Beuchner takes us through her journey as a transgender woman and shares how her relationship with the orchestral community changed when she decided to transition. She educated us on the intolerance that still exists towards the transgender community and shared how she has navigated that bias and still managed to be an extremely successful concert pianist.

Sara Davis Buechner is one of the leading concert pianists of our time. She has been praised worldwide as a musician of “intelligence, integrity and all-encompassing technical prowess” (New York Times).
