This week, Garrett and Scott spend some time reviewing and unpacking the latest Grammy Award ceremony, highlighting the show's performances by Lady Gaga, Doja Cat, Curtis Stewart, Chris Stapleton, and several others. In the second movement, Garrett revisits a bit of operatic video game music while Scott honors the birth anniversary of Muddy Waters. Perri and Charlotte from the "Thrilled to Announce" podcast join Garrett in the third movement to discuss digital creation, DEI in opera, and podcasting in the "classical" sphere. And in the weekly TRILLOQUY Scott offers a whistleblower letter written by a former employee of Chamber Music America, and Garrett sends a dark shout out to three senators who refused to vote for the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act.
Support for TRILLOQUY comes from the Lakes Area Music Festival.
