Homeward Bound Concert - May 25, 2022

What the audience said...

May 15, 2022 – “Homeward Bound” was a re-visioning of the concert planned for the spring of 2020. It featured a beautiful 18 voice choir, a string quartet, and guest jazz artist, Beatrice Carpino. We also had our amazing new Collaborative Pianist, Adolfo De Santis.

This concert took us on a journey through the stages of “leaving home”, whatever that may mean for you. We began with awakening to the realization that the time has come to move on, but also acknowledged the emotional trials, as well as the adventure, joys, promise of new beginnings and, ultimately, an appreciation of ‘home’. It is such a positive and hopeful message for our times today, as we emerge from this pandemic!
