In Vivre Musicale’s 4th season entitled “War & Peace: A Season of Reflection, Understanding, and Acceptance” we will probe these and other questions related to these antithetical paradigms and investigate how new and old concepts of war and peace coexist, redefining our cultural landscape. In three distinct concerts, Disturbia, Humanity, and Sexuality, Vivre presents controversial topics of war and subsequent peace that have stood the test of time and continue to beckon for change and, at the very least, closer investigation in the present day.
Disturbia will treat the volatile political climate in which we live today where Democrat and Republican stand strongly opposed to one another; where around the world examples of social uprisings, revolutions, and change are being seen on a grand scale, and where our own way of life, perception and understanding of the standard quo is increasingly challenged. Humanity treats the thorny and pervasive issue of race, immigration, and man’s basic sense of community, brotherhood, and compassion. Sexuality will delve deep into the growing and controversial social conscience of the day, looking at issues of women’s rights, gender roles, and the social standings and legal implications of what has become the new civil rights movement, the new “black,” homosexuality.
Through a musical tapestry melded with other thought-provoking artistic mediums, this season will provide gripping and gritty food for thought, that will satiate the most inquisitive of minds, stimulate the most controversial of views, and create a platform for open and honest discussion related to the topics at hand through the introduction of our newest Vivre entity, Forum.
