April 13 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Classical music concerts often center around a particular composer, canonical masterwork, or geographical compositional style. Consequently, today’s programs celebrate a relatively small group of composers, and we miss opportunities to approach music in ways that incorporate a broader range of music-making experiences by a diverse range of music-makers. Curating concert programs to focus on people who, unlike history’s most celebrated composers, we know little about is inherently challenging. Using textual and musical examples from Musicians of the Tenshō Embassy, Lyracle will provide a behind-the-scenes peek at how, with a lot of research and a little imagination, Lyracle puts together concerts about figures who have remained in the shadows of history.
