Hold Music


A symphonic story about the way people listen to each other and to the world around them, HOLD MUSIC takes us on a journey into the musical world of speech and memory, language and thought. Drawing upon live music, video, movement, and text to tell intertwined and parallel stories, the performance begins with the question: Why and how does music make us feel? How do things get stuck in our head?
