Have you ever felt like there’s a part of you that’s just dying to come out? Like… a pull, or a longing for something? Like there’s this place you’ve never actually been, but when you find it, it feels like home?
The Way to Becoming is a concert exploring this very idea, featuring music written by Nadia Boulanger, Florence Price, Rebecca Clarke, and Billie Eilish, interwoven with original pieces by Elizabeth Derstine. Through these works, Liz and her collaborators explore the moments of joy, fulfillment, and enrichment, alongside the heart-wrenching challenges and trials that come with navigating one’s unique path.
Elizabeth Blosser Derstine is a student of Eri Nakamura.
