“Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of chaos, and sometimes in the middle of chaos you find yourself. “ – Boonaa Mohammed
In the last year, the entire globe has experienced isolation. Within the isolation, musicians around the world found themselves without a stage to perform on, without an audience, without ensembles. But within this absence, some found a spark of creativity. In this two-part virtual event, the Kentucky Chamber Orchestra explores living composers active during the pandemic from all around the globe, both professional and amateur.
