Light is a multi-part concert series featuring innovative and eclectic musicians of our time. The series includes programs from a new composer collective, advocacy-focused initiative, and works performed by the composers themselves. 

Light spotlights critical motivations, process, and creative solutions composers and performing artists employ in developing and presenting work that is artistically grounded, socially motivated, and culturally driven.
