Open Space: Music Moves Us
October 10, 2020 7:00PM EST
Join Shawn Wyckoff (flute) and Maria Kaneko Millar (violin) of Sonic Escape in Music Moves Us as they time travel from the Underground Railroad all the way to today’s US-Mexico border. With stops at a foot-stomping Ceilidh and even a scene from “Game of Thrones,” you’ll experience fear, sorrow, joy, hope, and ultimately, transformation.
Sonic Escape features violinist Maria Kaneko Millar and flutist Shawn Wyckoff, a pair of Juilliard graduates whose blend of hyper-instrumentals, stories, moves and original works is "wonderfully imaginative... with a wide-ranging, anything-goes sense of fun." (The Washington Post). Maria and Shawn founded Sonic Escape in 2009 and have performed at Lincoln Center, Ottawa Chamberfest, Kennedy Center, Radio City Music Hall, Gershwin Theatre on Broadway and Carnegie Hall. Their workshops and residencies have empowered students from Iqaluit, Nunavut down to Montgomery, Alabama and their alma mater, The Juilliard School. Come see what the joy is all about!
