CSO Look Around: The Music

Composer and Look Around Co-Creator Shara Nova wrote over three hours of music for the CSO and nine choirs specifically for this event, drawing inspiration from stories and interviews with local artists and residents. Nova's music and lyrics tap into themes of gentrification and seeing each other ("Hey, Yo"), social structures ("Papa Patriarchy") and peace and reconciliation ("Tratar de Transformar"). Nova collaborated with TRIIIBE, composer Nathan Thatcher and others to guide the sounds of CSO Look Around. We hope to spark community conversation that continues long after this event is over.
