New solo works by female-identifying, non-binary or gender non-conforming composers for young audiences

Intersection’s LISTEN project is a multi-year initiative celebrating the voices of female-identifying, non-binary or gender non-conforming composers.   25 composers will be commissioned and paired with Intersection musicians to create new, original, solo works designed for young audiences.  


LISTEN is made possible with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, and to find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit
