This year has caused many to pause and think... Reflection offers us an opportunity to see the world from another person’s perspective. It is purposeful and should inspire action. It is an act which brings clarity, insight, truth, perspective, responsibility, obligation, and change.“Reflections,” Nightingale’s second multi-media concert, takes us on a journey of contemplation, beginning with one’s own life, extending to others, and finally considering how the world impacts us and how we in turn impact the world. The concert features dancer Dwayne Mitchell, and will feature five world premieres by Nightingale members Laura Nevitt, Nicholas Ford, Kelvyn Koning, Benjamin Perry, and John Haukoos.
Thanks to all who attended the pre concert talk and the post concert Q&A! We enjoyed interacting with you!
