In this episode, Veda and Tricia discuss the connections we create through music and how these connections create ecosystems that extend beyond what we can even see. We also talk about how our musical experiences inform other aspects of our lives, including sustainability and environmental impact.

Veda Hingert-McDonald (she/her) is a Canadian violinist and composer currently based
in Boulder, Colorado. Drawn to story just as much as sound, Veda’s performance of both
new and standard repertoire aims to balance personal connection with tradition, and her
compositions often draw on narrative and programmatic elements to explore themes of
nature and questions she has about the world around her.
Outside of her musical life Veda is active in environmental and food justice work
including training in permaculture design, founding a zero waste concert series, and
creating an Indigenous food justice garden. She sees both chamber music and
permaculture as opportunities to build and model the kind of interconnectedness and
empathy she wishes to see in the world.
