This program is about the cyclical nature of life. The beginning, the end and the journey throughout are all part of one continuous burst of momentum which starts at no specific point. The music we have chosen is an exploration of how every aspect of life—tension and release, pain and euphoria, devastation and joy—is deeply intertwined with one another; thus, creating a complementary blend of the polar nature of being human. When it comes down to it, it’s all about perspective.
