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.

-Cancelled-Collage Composers Colloquium

Sunday • March 29, 2020   |   4:00 pm

Join Collage New Music on March 29, 2020, for an event-filled day that begins with a composition workshop, and concludes with the ensemble’s evening concert. The day provides opportunities for emerging young composers to meet and share ideas with each other, and benefit from observations of their own music by guest composers Yu-Hui Chang and Peter Child.

Registered participants may submit a recent work to be considered for a masterclass with Yui-Hui Chang and Peter Child. From the applications, several composers’ works will be chosen for discussion. All registered participants will receive admission to the CCC, pizza dinner, a Collage mug, pre-concert talk, and a ticket for the evening’s concert. While registration for the CCC will remain open on a rolling basis, entries must be submitted by March 1, 2020, to be considered for the masterclass.

Guest Composers:
Yu-Hui Chang
Peter Child
