Prior to COVID, CGDT was working on multiple projects including a collaborative project with pianist, Joshua White. CGDT was also working with Colburn School faculty members, Tamsin Carlson and Jordan Nelson, on a project about the burden of beauty.

We are looking forward to sharing this work with you once public performance is safe again!
