Join NEC’s Eden MacAdam-Somer and Contemporary Improvisation department students and faculty in a concert featuring original works and recompositions that offer a kaleidoscopic perspective on protest music and social change throughout history. Following in the tradition of such greats as Bob Dylan, Pete and Peggy Seeger, Abbey Lincoln, John Coltrane, Dmitri Shostakovich, Amkoullel, and Arya Aramnejad, performers will turn themselves and their communities inside-out, examining the way that music shapes and is shaped by one’s place in the world around us. The concert takes place on Tuesday, February 18 at 8 p.m. in NEC’s Jordan Hall, 290 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA. It is free and open to the public.
