Now/Hear concerts give audiences the opportunity to experience the magic of live classical music in a relaxed atmosphere that is connective, collaborative, and liberated.
A live classical music performance is an incredible opportunity to encounter emotionally powerful music, skillful artistry, and a like-minded community in one place.
The traditional concert model dating from the late 19th C maintains Western culture’s tendency to privilege the mind over the body and heart. Rigid expectations of behavior on both sides of the stage can enhance a feeling of separation and limit possibilities for generative connection and authenticity.
Now/Hear re-centers the elements of the communal musical experience that have nourished people for centuries - togetherness, aliveness, and direct encounter with the mystery of the Muse.
