Our 2022–23 season marks our return to a newly reimagined David Geffen Hall. We begin the season by examining the notion of home and what it is to belong to a community. From there, we explore together those things that unite us in our shared humanity: the triumphs of the human spirit, our quests for liberation, and the urgent fragility of our earth.


Two weeks of concerts address our ecological emergency and how we might survive on planet Earth.
