With a mixture of live music and multimedia, Minimalism Changed My Life showcases the transcendental powers of Minimalism in an uplifting and spine-tingling experience.

Tones, Drones and Arpeggios, this concert explores work by some of the great composers of the genre who rebooted classical music in the 20th century.
