An exploration of diverse perspectives

When we began planning Strathmore’s 2017–2018 season, there were many lively discussions about the potential of music and art to break down barriers and build understanding between people of different backgrounds. 

Particularly, we were struck by the power of songwriters and the way in which lyrics and music composition reflect perspectives of people from different places, cultures, and eras. Music can take us on a journey through individual narratives and stories, giving us a glimpse into worlds we don’t know. Ultimately, songs can reveal universal themes of humanity to help us find common ground. 

The people, places, and situations change, but the songs themselves, over and over, reflect themes that are familiar to us all—resilience, family, youthful innocence, restless longing, fear, dreams—highlighting our connections to the past, each other, and the world around us. Songs are windows to all of this and more.
