As we approach winter, come join the Emerson Choir and Intergenerational Orchestra as in their performance of “The Longest Nights” by Timothy Takach. The music and texts observe winter as a descent as we approach the new year. In the words of the composer “We dig deep, we nestle ourselves in…we have to endure, we have to stay strong through the turning of the year. Hibernation and metamorphosis come to mind… Will we be the same person on the other side? Or do we grow? Do we change?”
Together we will explore the how concepts of collective music-making inform the way transform community in order to build a future distinct from the past.
