Recent story about Home Place


"Home Place" explores the city and the concept of shelter

Published June 17, 2014

Inspired by last year's TypeFace project, Present Music went back into the same four neighborhoods and, working with schools, organizations and a senior center in the communities, developed new works based on their words and experiences. The results comprise an integral facet of Present Music's season finale, "Home Place," a musical and visual examination of what words and concepts like "home" and "shelter" mean on several levels.
