This moderated panel will bring together women and people of color who are working as music critics for a discussion about gender and racial diversity in the field. Discussion topics will include the challenges and importance of presenting a broader range of critical voices, experiences and opinions in media; the impact of race and gender on both the observer and the observed during a reviewed performance; how the #MeToo movement has been covered by the classical music press; and solutions for cultivating a more inclusive and representational criticism-performance ecosystem. The panel will include perspectives from outside classical music to demonstrate that certain issues cross professional divides.
