The City Is Burning

Sun, October 29th, 2017 | 4:00pm | New England Conservatory: Brown Hall

The Contemporary Improvisation Department at NEC presents The City is Burning by CI faculty member and composer Linda Chase.

The soundscape of the 21st century is dominated by fragmentation, noise and distractions from a constant barrage of interruptions where our capacity to hear and respond to the earth’s expressions and the voice of the Spirit is being eroded. The City is Burning musically explores critical challenges of our time and reflects on what it means to listen to the inner voice, the quiet truth of the soul, recognizing that feelings of uneasiness might be an awakening from inaction to a place of active hope.
