andPlay (in) conversation with Shepherdess

andPlay (in) conversation is a free series that opens up the collaborative process of creating contemporary music to the public. Featuring collaborators with andPlay and artists they admire, these events include conversations with composers about collaboration, performances of their works, open discussions with the audience, and interactive workshops for children.

Shepherdess is a duo based in New York City, comprised of violinist Hajnal Pivnick and mezzo soprano Kayleigh Butcher. Shepherdess is dedicated to disseminating works by living composers. Our violin and voice duo stems from a shared commitment to amplify new voices within the contemporary classical musical landscape. Each composer we work with represents a distinct compositional voice, each drawing their inspiration from American folk influences, instrumental and vocal extended techniques, and the intersection of social justice and music.

andPlay (in) conversation is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the New York State Legislature and administered by LMCC. andPlay (in) conversation is made possible in part with public funds from Restart NY supported by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by LMCC.
