22 / 23 SEASON

For Longy’s 2022–2023 event season, we invite you to leave all preconceptions at home.

Musical experiences can have any starting point. Whether born of complex ideas, emotional impulses, or spontaneous inspiration, every music maker begins wherever they are—which is exactly where they need to be.

Just as there’s no right way, no single starting line for becoming a musician, composer, or performer, there’s no one correct entry point for us as the audience. There’s no required reading for experiencing a piece of music, no prerequisite understanding or context to bring with you to a musical experience. You come to it from wherever you are.

In relinquishing our ideas of what a musical experience should be, we open ourselves to receiving and internalizing music in a way that is unique and true to each of us.

Every artist, composer, and musician represented in this season’s program took a different path to arrive at Longy, detours and scenic routes included. We hope the stories on our stages this year inspire you to begin your own new journey, no matter where you start. Allow yourself to begin wherever you are.

When there’s no set path to follow, you become free to begin anywhere.

Ensemble Uncaged: Fundamental/Elemental | Andy Kozar, co-director Rachael Elliot, co-director

Monday • December 2, 2019   |   7:30 pm

Tonight’s performance will take place as scheduled.

Longy’s premiere contemporary music ensemble will explore diverse programs that encourage performer and listener alike to examine the fundamentals and elements of music. Each piece and program will frame ideas through rhythm and melody, harmony and texture, form and dynamics. We’re taught that these elements make up the fundamental building blocks of music, but in the 21st century, is that actually true? Join Ensemble Uncaged as we explore these illuminating concepts!
