Above all, music touches that which runs deeper than whatever divides us. It is our positive hope for the future.
There is a saying that the only good composers are dead composers, but the composers sourced for this concert are very much alive: young, vibrant, and engaged in the social fabric of our times. Their music reflects the bravery and strength of women, African-Americans, and the LGBTQ community – with some composers representing more than one of those groups.
The concert will be preceded by a lecture with Visiting Assistant Professor Jon Noworyta about the music, why it was chosen and the impact these pieces have on society today.
