"How many concerts
have the narrative
power of exciting
theater?
How
many concerts
offer such a rich
sense of discovering
new and vital music?
This is what we want all
concerts to be, though
we know it rarely
happens. An evening
of discovery and
enchantment,
a
reminder of how
illuminating a journey
a great song can be."
