Songs About Buildings and Moods Screening

Songs About Buildings and Moods is a video series exploring the intersection of music and architecture.

The series avoids a scientific approach and instead focuses on the emotional impact architecture and music have in our lives.

The series is headed to PBS in early 2023 but we’ll give an exclusive sneak peek at the historic Music Box Theater on October 27th.

“It’s a moment of celebration of a kind of mythology that we’ve lost because buildings used to be infused with music” – Architect Daniel Libeskind (World Trade Center)

Don’t miss this one-night-only event!
Tickets are $20 per person

    Hailed by the New Yorker as “the most vital and eloquent composer in America,” Pulitzer prize winner John Adams is a towering figure in modern music. Rooted in minimalism and the American vernacular, with a generous helping of his own off-beat sensibility, Adams has forged a unique and deeply influential musical identity.
