New Music That Searches for Beauty in Times of Adversity
We end our season-long journey through the intersection of music and social advocacy with a moving evening of inspirational beauty. Each work on this special program was a composer’s artistic response to a tragic event, whether personal or public. Rather than turn to cathartic expressions of anger and grief, these composers made the extraordinary decision to look toward transcendent beauty as a way to celebrate the humanity that connects us all. Composers include Arvo Pärt, Kevin Puts, and Dobrinka Tabakova. Throughout the concert, we will include readings of excerpts from Rebecca Solnit’s landmark 2004 book that inspired our season, “Hope in the Dark.”
