The Amherst College Department of Music presents an honors thesis in composition, "Reasons to Leave", by Sebastian Son '22. The performance takes place Saturday, February 5 at 7 PM in Buckley Recital Hall in the Arms Music Center at Amherst College. The concert is FREE. Please see the AC COVID-19 information on this website for up-to-date COVID protocols; seating is by general admission. For those unable to attend in person, we recommend tuning in to the FREE Music Department Event Live Stream.
"Reasons to Leave" chronicles the voices of ordinary people on the brink of a huge decision - a rocket ship is leaving the Earth, and each of them must find their own reasons to board it and leave forever. Through a musical journey of folk, rock, pop, and Broadway songs, Son creates a world of mystery, longing, regret, and sudden hope, with music and lyrics that capture the beauty of the human spirit.
