SOUNDBOX: PRINCIPIA

Principia [prin-​ˈsi-​pē-​ə]: noun, a beginning; the origin

From the raw spontaneity of jazz to meticulously refined Baroque—all music starts with an improvised spark. This December, SoundBox uncovers the mysterious art of music-making. Be there as it catches fire, experience its creative evolution intensify, and see all the wonderful and wildly different ways it can take shape on stage.

Dabble in a night of principia musica.
