Practical Water (2019) Arizona Premiere

Aiyana Braun (b. 1997) is a composer, conductor, and pianist whose work confronts pressing political and social matters while often drawing upon elements of nature. She believes that in times of adversity, it is important to emulate aspects of the environment around us to ground ourselves as well as be reminded of the inherent beauty of our surroundings which may otherwise go unseen, unheard, and unappreciated.
