    Grand Conversations

    This month, hear from two alumni from our first national Fortissima cohort, Bianca Quddus and Lauren Elise Edwards. These remarkable young women were selected to participate in this year’s Fortissima program, which is an artistic and leadership development program at the Colburn School. It is designed to inspire, equip, and empower high school age young women from underrepresented minorities in classical music to pursue professional training and careers in the field.
