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.

JCM Chamber Series – Art of Duo/Trio and South American Jazz ensemble concerts

Tuesday • March 30, 2021   |   7:30 pm

Live-streamed from Pickman Hall at 7:30 – Art of Duo/Trio examines the delicate and communicative art of jazz duos or trios. Untethered from the expected sounds of drums and bass, these intimate pairings of guitar, piano, sax and voice recast the work of Duke Ellington, George Harrison, Billy Strayhorn, Gillian Welch, Radiohead, Prince and SZA into true music conversations.

South American Jazz ensemble brings together folk and jazz traditions from composers across the continent. Highlighted this semester is the work of Brazilian multi-instrumentalist and composer Hermeto Pascoal.
