Alma Ensemble was founded by flutist Sarah Wardle Jones, clarinetist Michelle Smith Johnson, and pianist Erica Sipes. It was birthed from a desire of the founding members to create music in a way that is empowering and personally resonant. The group places a high priority on playing music by other women composers, educating their audience by creating context for the pieces they select, and challenging traditional performance paradigms that inhibit, rather than enhance, their ability to communicate and connect with an audience.
Reception at 6:30 pm. Performance at 7 pm. Social distancing and masks required. Limited capacity. Advance tickets required.
