The recent pandemic has disrupted our lives in countless ways. We have all been touched by the virus in some form or another-it has affected our health, our careers, the ability to see our loved ones, and much more. Today, Jenni and I are going to talk about our musical collaboration during this fraught period. The piece that we created amplifies the voices and experiences of women of all ages and backgrounds living during this Covid-era. It exhibits the unique obstacles women have had to overcome, and showcases their bond of strength, resiliency and sisterhood. It is a work about women, by women.
