Woven Skies Concert Series

   

Woven Skies Concert Series presented by Consonare Choral Community and featuring Voices of Concinnity presented as three (3) separate live and in-person concert collaborations.

   

Why "Woven Skies"?  The idea was to craft a program to encourage us all to draw their eyes upward to remind us of our shared humanity.  The orbits and paths of celestial entities are intertwined and intersect, much like the woven threads of fabric.  The sky should be a reflection of our connection here on earth since we all look up at the same stars and rely on the gift of the same sun. But, injustice stands in our way.  Our Woven Skies Concert Series will feature collaborations to illuminate through choral music how turning our eyes to the celestial can build community here on earth.

Stars are for All Who Look Up

Voices of Concinnity will collaborate with Unitus Ensemble and Charter Oak Cultural Center with a concert under the stars to explore access to viewing the night sky (use of projections).  A virtual discussion "Are stars for all who look up?" will precede the performance.
