Musica Viva: Sounds of Remembrance

As listeners we often go to concerts to be uplifted, thrilled, and inspired but not very often to be challenged.  I believe that music has the power to make us look inwards and to make us ponder.  In Musica Viva’s next concert, Sounds of Remembrance, six extraordinary musical compositions and seven powerful poems are interwoven to create a continuum of sound that will challenge you to reflect and remember.  I look forward to sharing this unique and moving program with you on Sunday, January 24 at 5PM at All Souls Church.
