What is "home"? A building? A place? A feeling? A new musical composition by Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra (SPCO) Music Alive Composer-in-Residence Lembit Beecher addresses this question by combining the responses of nearly fifty Twin Cities residents with music.

Featuring reminiscences, narratives, memories along with a new poem by St. Thomas English professor Chris Santiago, this new piece will premier in February during the SPCO Tapestry19 Festival. Join the composer and St. Thomas student and faculty interviewees for a musical preview and discussion of this innovative project.
