HEIR Session II

For our final Spring Eternal concert, our artists both revisit some favorite pieces and showcase some brand-new compositions, the product of an innovative songwriting workshop with composer, songwriter, recording artists, performer and teacher Paul Reisler, the Founder and Artistic Director of Kid Pan Alley, and co-founder of Trapezoid.
