Making Sense

Taste, Touch, Smell, Sight, Hearing—

How do we make sense of the world we live in? A blue bird singing on a nearby branch, the giggle of a toddler, the aroma of morning coffee, walking barefoot on the beach, the sweetness of a berry, the familiar faces of friends…

Our music for this concert will be filled with songs about the five senses. Music that asks us to look, to listen, to experience and become more aware of the world around us.
