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.

Music has the power to unite communities, speak the unspoken, and bring comfort when words are not enough. Join us for a discussion and firsthand accounts of the healing power of music in communities that have been affected by trauma and social disconnection.

Participants include Dean Judith Bose; Rebecca Strauss, original member of Shelter Music Boston, founder and director of Harmony & Hope, Certified Music Practitioner, and Longy Music as a Healing Art faculty; and Anthony Leva, Tunefoolery community music director and Longy faculty member.

Longy is grateful to event co-sponsors Cary Memorial Library, Dunamis, Harmony & Hope, Riverview Chamber Players, Shelter Music Boston, and Tunefoolery Music.
