Classical music provokes us to feel. To experience our emotions. To process our experiences. This musical program journeys from disbelief, sadness, and loneliness to joy, beauty, and hope for the future. Join the presenters as they use music to create a narrative that tells the stories of how the New Beginnings, a local organization aiding domestic abuse victims, has impacted the community, and, beyond that, as they deeply engage with this music as it personally speaks to each of us.

The Sustain Music Project is a chamber music group which connects the community through classical music by creating engaging and interesting musical experiences. Their programs tell stories through music. They talk about what’s going on behind each piece – for instance, why the composer wrote it, what to listen for, and what to think about while listening –  and they connect it to what’s happening around us in the present. They partner with different artistic mediums (such as visual arts, food, and dance) and with community-serving nonprofits to link music and life. They believe that people who need music the most often have the least access to it, which is why they also perform their concerts at shelters, hospitals, schools, and other community-minded venues. They create a sustainable environment for music through new audiences, new music, and new connections between music and life.

This performance is presented by The Sustain Music Project.
