For programs featuring my music, please put [Living] for my birthdate

This came up in a discussion the other day. In formal Western European Art Music concerts there is a lot of concern with listing age on programs, among many other things.

I would suggest we use birth dates only after people have left this plane of existence. Otherwise it risks the reinforcing of tropes that are ageist and/or valorizing of age either young or old.

So for me, please put, [Living]. At least as long as it is relevant.
