RSVP required – THIS EVENT IS AT CAPACITY
The work explores the heightened emotional challenges of this period, the uncertainty, fear, isolation, and collective longing for connection. Our ever shifting, individual perceptions of time during the pandemic are mirrored in the elasticity of the music composition and referenced with the twelve quintets arranged to resemble a timepiece. Yet, just as during the last few years, the challenges put into stark relief the hope and triumph of the human spirit, serving as a reminder of the light that always follows the darkest times.
This live performance features Contemporaneous ensemble members playing alongside North Adams-local musicians under the musical direction of David Bloom.
Once we were distanced, and now we come together.
Additional performances will take place on Saturday, January 28 during Free Day, the schedule is forthcoming. Learn more about Free Day here.
