Breath – The Notes Unplayed
Discover the possibilities of a pause, a breath, and notes unplayed in this extraordinary music and poetry event featuring the internationally acclaimed artists Dan Blacksberg and Tyshawn Sorey, playing together for the first time in 10 years, Salina Kuo, percussionist and composer, and Airea D. Matthews, Philadelphia's Poet Laureate.
Rising Sun: Artists in an Uncertain America is an exhibition of new works by 20 artists exploring themes of equality, free speech, and other tenets of democracy. The conversation continues with Breath – The Notes Unplayed, where we will listen to the words, notes, breaths and rests of masterful works by four of Philadelphia's most talented artists, creating space to reflect on the magic of taking a moment to breathe.
