Season 1, Episode 3: Destinee Siebe

In this episode of Orchestrating Change, we discussed issues of gender, sexuality, and representation through the lens of musicology. Destinee Siebe shared their own journey of self-discovery and how that has impacted their research and view of the history of classical music. How does diverse representation affect a listener? Where has diverse representation been present in music history and ignored and how do we commit to authentic representation in the future of classical music? All that and more, this week on Orchestrating Change. 

Destinee N. Siebe (she/her/hers or they/them/theirs) is a student musicologist, set to complete the Historical Musicology M.A. program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in spring 2021.
