How can songs in a minor key sometimes project sadness, but sometimes hope?
What unique instrumental techniques evoke feelings of cold and winter?
What role does sentimentality play in the performance of holiday music?

Although we don’t feel it here in Los Angeles, winter brings darkness and chill to many places on earth. This stillness brings its own kind of joy and inspiration. All is Calm All is Bright presents minor-key driven reflective songs about winter, generosity, redemption and the holiday season. Featuring classical favorites, new arrangements of traditional carols and original songs for violin, cello, clarinet, piano and vocals.

This original piece was so loved by our Lab audience that it became the namesake and inspiration for another holiday program.
