Why we tell stories through our concerts

“Music in its temporality certainly always is moving into the future, and shaping, and CHANGING the future,” writes Charles S. Brown. 

Creating stories allows for a prophetic dimension to emerge from the relics of our musical heritage, inspiring a reinterpretation. To discover in them something we have not seen before.
The story-line both informs and creates a context for the various pieces, all perfectly delightful in and of themselves, but now enhanced by their new placement within ideas quite relevant to our current lives. Can they speak to modern ears, with new meaning? Yes, absolutely.
We know this much: People want to be immersed. They want to get involved in a story, to carve out a role for themselves, to make it their own.Here’s how we apply the importance of “story” to our dramatic concerts.
