Megan reflected on Robert and Topology in a recent interview, "...We commission him [Robert Davidson] to create a new work especially for this concert that was based on the speeches of Greta Thunberg... I'm really excited about that work because not only is he [Robert] a beautiful composer but I'm particularly interested in her work and it feels really amazing to be able to celebrate..."
