This season Ember explores the presumptions and consequences faced by the people of the world when nations go to war. Loss, remembrance, and reconciliation are grist for the artist’s mill as poets and composers struggle to make sense of conflict.
Ember is dedicated to bringing the power of music to bear on issues of social significance. This year, leading to the centennial anniversary of the World War I Armistice (11 November 2018), Ember is exploring the human impact of military conflict.
Without question, the most heart-rending evidence of such impact can be found in the lives of veterans and their families. Learn how Ember is serving as a catalyst for significant conversations and how you may sponsor a veteran during this series of concerts.Learn More
