Because the world needs music now more than ever, Longy is reimagining conservatory education. We are leading the seismic shift to center music as social change, expanding the world’s understanding of what a life in music can mean. We prepare you to engage new audiences, teach anyone, anywhere — and make a difference with your music.

Longy is committed to racial equity, ensuring access, amplification, and power-shifting. We believe in the power of artistic and social connection and we honor the humanity of all people. We stand in solidarity with Black, Brown, and Indigenous people, Asian, Asian-American, and Pacific Islander communities. As leaders, teachers, learners, and music-makers we are co-conspirators dismantling racism in music and higher education.

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.
