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.

Warming the Season: Connecting Cambridge

Sunday • December 15, 2019   |   3:00 pm

Enjoy a heart-warming afternoon of music as performers from the Longy School of Music partner with The Friday Café to create this community-centered concert.

The Friday Café is a place where people from a wide variety of life circumstances can relax, share a meal, and talk together as friends. At this concert, we hope to create a welcoming space where even more people can come together to relax, enjoy music, and feel connected as a Cambridge community.

Audience members are encouraged to bring gently used clothing and winter gear, or new pairs of socks and underwear to donate. These items will be given to members of our community who need some extra help keeping warm in this cold season.
