With framing from a mindfulness practitioner, explore the concept of “beginner’s mind.” How does a composer approach each new composition with openness and eagerness? What would it mean for audience members to engage new music lacking preconceptions?

Participants include composers and Longy faculty members Alexandra du Bois, John Morrison, and Matthew Evan Taylor.

Longy is grateful to event co-sponsors Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, Cambridge Center for Adult Education, Cambridge Insight Meditation Center, Cary Memorial Library, and Dunamis.

All Experience Longy Series events are held online.
