Come and meet Boulanger Initiative co-founder, Dr. Joy-Leilani Garbutt, as she shares what this organization is, how it works to improve equity and representation, and how their current research and advocacy projects can help students, performers, and teachers access more diverse repertoire. The Boulanger Initiative advocates for women and gender marginalized composers through performance, education, research, consulting, and commissions.

Joy-Leilani Garbutt is an organist, musicologist, and an ardent advocate for gender-equity in the field of music. Joy-Leilani is the recipient of a Fulbright scholarship and spent a year in France pursuing research on early 20th-century French organ music by female composers, particularly Joséphine Boulay, Mel Bonis, Nadia and Lili Boulanger, Jeanne Demessieux, Marie-Véra Maixandeau, and Henriette Puig-Roget. She holds a Ph.D. in musicology, a Master of Education degree from The Harvard Graduate School of Education, and a Master of Music in organ performance from Northwestern University, where she served as Organ Scholar for the Alice Millar Chapel.

This event is presented in conjunction with Dr. Garbutt’s performance at the Church of Christ at Dartmouth College on April 5 as part of the Ives Recital Series.
