Ensemble Pi has operated at the intersection of music and social justice since 2015, and in an upcoming concert the group will tackle the need for Black reparations head on! Allison Loggin-Hull talks to Garrett about "The Pattern", which is a piece of music she wrote specifically for this virtual performance. The ensemble's pianist, Idith Korman, offers her thoughts and experiences as both a musician who centers social justice, and the recipient of Jewish reparations. Garrett and Scott honor the legacy of the late John Brim, and the guys respond to an anti-racist statement made by WUOL-FM.
