The theme of this year's concert is Return to Innocence. Living in a post-pandemic world, people have gradually learned to slow down the pace of life, whether be spending more time accompanying family members, or starting to gain more opportunities to reflex. In addition to this, we hope more people can calm down and listen to the sounds of nature from another perspective to observe a different world and discover the beauty of life everywhere. The concert wants to use traditional East Asian musical instruments, pianos, and MIDI to exhibit the innocence of awakening the inner heart to discover the beauty of life in time.

Date and Time: Saturday, June 24th, 2023 7:30-9:00pm
