Women have long played an extensive role in the world of music, but navigating the industry often comes with a unique set of obstacles. Local musicians Carrie Chandler, Emily McKown, and Olivia Tasch are working to break down those barriers for female musicians in the community, starting at a young age. Through the local, non-profit organization Girls Rock! Champaign-Urbana, they seek to empower girls and women using the tools of music education and creative self-expression. Each one brings their own experience of what it’s like to be a woman in the music scene, and uses that perspective to help others grow and gain confidence in their craft. Join us for a night of music and interactive conversation around the values, challenges, and significance of women in music!

Featuring Emily McKown Olivia Tasch, and Carrie Chandler, members of Girls Rock! Champaign-Urbana. Moderated by Fiona Ngô (Gender & Women’s Studies and Asian American Studies).
