once more, with feeling!
Have you ever left a performance of contemporary music feeling that if only you could hear the piece again, your appreciation and understanding would deepen–that the music would come even more alive for you?
We created ONCE MORE, WITH FEELING! to give you that second listen on the same night, and to reveal the oftentimes subtle layers of a new piece through on-stage conversations with the composers.
We peel back the curtains on our brand-new, multiple-listen, deep-dive series with one of our favorite tracks from the Spektral rep list, penned by a seriously engaging public speaker, composer Eliza Brown.
