WHAT IS SOUNDBOX?

In the small entry room, you move past a curtain, through an unknown door. There’s a teasing view—some kind of installation fills a sunken space. It's like you scored a backstage pass. Time to explore.

Turn the corner, find the bar: there’s craft cocktails and small bites. Video projections flash on the walls. All eyes go to the stage, ready for the show to start.

And then the music. Live music—it’s just so good. Pounding beats, otherworldly chants come from all corners of the space. Close your eyes: it sounds like you're in a cathedral, and then an underground club. Unique and stimulating and totally different.

This April, SoundBox illuminates a musical family tree like no other. Curated by Artist-in-Residence and visionary classical vocalist Julia Bullock, explore a century-spanning program that bridges defiant contrasts and unearths surprising connections. Hear legendary voices of jazz, blues, and R&B intertwined with medieval chants, Baroque gems, and enchanting French classics. From Nina Simone and J.S. Bach to Josephine Baker and Poulenc, this is music fusion at its most rebellious and dazzling level.

See the sparks fly when history bends and legacies collide.
