It’s in the nature of composers to want to reshape sound, but how do we reshape what sound and music do for us as a community? This is a question that occupies composer Dan Visconti, and it started with a feeling of curiosity about how to make classical music a more communal experience, in the ways of jazz or folk music. With audiovisual samples spanning his career of working with refugees, prisoners, and cabaret troupes, Visconti imagines what our world might look like when major arts organizations like the BSO create programs with the most vulnerable and marginalized among us in mind.
