Taína Asili – UpLift Commission Series
The TSBMH and WEXT present the UpLift Commissioned Series. This series, curated by Sophia Subbayya Vastek and Sam Torres, of Organ Colossal, features musicians commissioned by the Hall to create one new song that reflects their emotions and experiences during the last year. Each song was performed and filmed on the Music Hall stage. The resulting videos will be premiered on YouTube and Facebook and will be followed by an online discussion with the artist. The audience will be able to ask questions of the artists and interact with one another.
This event is free and open to the public, no ticket required! Links to the online event will be released closer to the performance.
