In this video: Syzygy Ensemble is an award-winning contemporary music group is lauded for its virtuoso precision and original programming. This concert explores journeys both literal and metaphorical, from the curious life cycle of bees with Liza Lim to the ecstatically pealing bells of Sean Shepherd’s Lumens, celebrating nature’s cycle of rebirth from ash and fire — new life after death. Syzygy Ensemble turns 10 in 2019 and reflects on what it means to grow and change.
