This concert is an exploration and rumination on pressing matters facing each of us today. The program opens with Katahj Copley's "In Living Color" celebrating the joy of performing live music after the hiatus during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kevin Day's "Requiem for the Unarmed" follows as a musical response to the horrific death of George Floyd in 2020 not long after the world was rocked by the pandemic and all the countless Black Lives lost at the hands of racial injustice.

Our next duo of works represents a plea for the wellbeing of our natural world with David Maslanka's "Mother Earth" and Cait Nishimura's "The Nature of Trees."

The future of our world rests with our children and Mark Camphouse's "Watchman, Tell Us of the Night" portrays the loneliness and loss of innocence experienced by victims of child abuse and the enduring hope we have for all survivors.

In times of darkness, we look towards the dawning of a new day and light illuminating the darkness. Our concert ends with that hope in James David's "Urban Light," a vibrant and rhythmic celebration of color and forward momentum.
