2023/24 Season

What makes a moment? There are certain times that stick with us. Events that define us as individuals, as communities, as society. These moments can ground us like roots, restrain us, or push us to burst forth into new futures. And this season, Hop artists take us deep into these singular moments, each with their own artistry and in their own voice.

This season, Hop artists take us deep into singular moments that define us as individuals and as a society, each with their own artistry and in their own voice. We'll listen through the strange period of the pandemic as captured through a 27-song anthology of violin works and hear the first improvised performance of a 17-piece chamber orchestra.  A fierce and hilarious one-woman show will take us into the instances when politics and performance art intertwine. We'll celebrate through music the triumphant moment when 1600 Torah scrolls were saved and restored to their community. And revisit a riveting tale in American history about the near extinction of a magnificent species and the people who depended on it. It will all start with a shared moment in nature where mythological figures emerge and move through the landscape
