Julianne B. Merrill is music directing the performance. She will lead a band comprising Monica Davis on violin, Ann Klein on guitar, Merrill on piano, Noelle Rueschman on reeds, Shirazette Tinnin on drums, Melissa Westgate on cello, and Mary Ann McSweeney on bass.

Founded by Georgia Stitt, Maestra Music works to provide support, visibility, and community to women and non-binary musicians working in the musical theatre industry.
"This is our fourth annual Amplify concert, and we get bigger and better every year," says Stitt in a statement. "Amplify audiences come for the amazing performances but leave empowered to take Maestra's work back into their own communities. It really is a celebration that starts at the end of Women's History Month and continues for the next 11 months of the year!"
