Ms. Stillman's Música en tus Manos (Music in Your Hands) project with her Dolce Suono Ensemble is devoted to introducing chamber music to the Latino community of Philadelphia through working with partner organizations and schools in Latino neighborhoods, presenting bilingual events in Spanish
and English, and having side-by-side performances with music students. They won the Knight Arts Challlenge in 2013 to begin the project and have continued it with awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and the William Penn Foundation.
Ms. Stillman has worked with young and emerging composers since she was a student herself, and has presented programs for developing composers as part of Dolce Suono Ensemble. These include two Young Composers Competitions and the innovative ComposerLab Flute: Young American Composers project, which was conducted online during the covid pandemic and involved performances, masterclasses, and professional development for 10 composers under 30. ComposerLab will have its next, global cycle in 2022.
