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.

Join violinist, language specialist, and international educator Anita Lee on Wednesday, March 31 at noon!

As a certified music and English teacher, Lee has taught in Canada, China, and Japan. Her education research focuses on providing underserved children with sustainable access to music learning and performance opportunities. Based on this vision, she founded Music Go Global and co-founded the CAIS Instrumental Program. Lee was also part of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silkroad Project where she worked towards developing the Arts and Passion-Driven Learning Project for arts educators in the Greater Boston area.

Anita will help the audience think about their self-identity as musicians, learn about career opportunities as music graduates, and get ready for future career preparation while studying at school. She will share her education, career journey, and experience on how she balances her life both as a performer and as an educator on an international scale.
