Alberto has been a past Festival board member.
Alberto Lenz, artist
The pandemic that has plagued the entire world since last year has imposed on us the need to distance ourselves and take refuge in our private spaces. We have lost the physical, direct social contact so necessary for our lives. But in all this dramatic new circumstance, we have also learned that the key to getting out of it is to recover, strengthen and enrich our connections.
The connections between human beings and between us and nature, which we have hurt so much. And at the center of it all, the connection with our spirit, vital for the continuation of our culture.
His piece, influenced by geometrism in modern Mexican art, suggests the essence of musical performance in bold visual terms: sequences of interlocking elements that suggest a connection to composer, music, performer, and audience member. Seeing, feeling, experiencing connection is vital to who we are now.
Please join us in the spirit of connection and celebrate music’s power to enrich lives with this bold new work.
