1. Can you tell us about your QAF funded project?

ELEVATOR HEART (book & lyrics by Sara Cooper, music by Amy Burgess, Julia Meinwald, and Julianne Wick Davis) is an all-female ensemble musical theatre piece that takes place over the course of the open mic night to drop all mics. We'll be doing a concert of songs from the show this summer in a TBA venue!

2. How do you think this project will impact the community?

In ELEVATOR HEART, we're exploring what it means to be a woman in this city, in this country, and in this time. How do women work together, and how are they pitted against each other? We hope that this piece is an entertaining and moving examination of some of the issues facing women and that it highlights the way our voices can come together both to celebrate and to make meaningful, compassionate change.

3. How has QCA been helpful in the grant process?

QCA is supportive of artists in the creation of new pieces--we couldn't ask for a better partner in the arts!
