ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
Music is often referred to as the “universal language” – the lingua franca that unites people of different cultures. Music becomes a means of expression, a way to give voice to something when words fail. But while every culture creates music, not every person sings the same song. Some voices are so loud that they drown out others, and some words are privileged. This program explores the words behind the music, the ways in which different people have used music to give themselves or others a voice. And, we meditate on music’s role in silencing some voices while privileging others.
