About this Event
It plays a fundamental role in civilization, art, science, and life itself. Our evolution depended on our ability to capture it. It is a source of life and a source of destruction. There are entire fields of study devoted to optics, color, photography, and more - all of which exist solely because of the infinitesimal photons bombarding our planet each second. Mirrors, lenses, and prisms may allow us to alter, reflect and redirect it, but Light still retains metaphor-inspiring power. Songs, paintings, sculptures, and many more works of art throughout time use Light as a stand-in for knowledge, understanding, joy, and countless other states and ideas.
On October 8, 2022, The Capital Hearings will attempt to harness this gentle yet powerful element by exploring its nuances through song. From the Light of God to the shattered reflections of a disco ball, we’ll explore this basic building block of our existence from as many perspectives as possible.
Bringing together repertoire from a diverse array of traditions, the Capital Hearings illuminate the commonalities between songs of all styles, from all eras – and the communities that birthed them. Our genre-busting mission unites complex jazz, transcendent global and classical music, and dynamic modern hits into a thought-provoking message, breaking down barriers and prompting our audiences to build new bridges of understanding. You can listen to our CARA award-winning album here, and learn more about us on our website!Tickets
