Concert 3, Deep Exploration, Performed March 2020

This Concert Series was about Deep Exploration taking you to the depths of the Sea and  into the Galaxy above. The music for each piece along with the story and journey that the characters and the composer went through was the inspiration for this collaborative series of artwork created by Kelly Young and her daughter, Gracie. In preparation for creating the art together, Kelly and Gracie listened to Symphony No. 9 on numerous occasions. This powerful piece played in the background while they painted together.Kelly and Gracie listened to the music. The descriptions below are how we interpreted the music and the story behind it what inspired it.
