“What is a mother?” This simple, yet profound, question is expounded upon in a musical and filmic exposé on this theme, featuring works by Anna Clyne, Antonín Dvorák, and more.
Music to be juxtaposed with a new documentary film by Carlin Ma, commissioned by Emerald City Music.
Mothers are foundational to the human experience: a figure in the lives of every person – whether one associates as positive or negative, joyful or complex feelings with their own mother. Yet center-lane celebrations of Mother’s Day do not provide a wholly adequate platform for expressing the immensity of these complex relationships. In this collaborative initiative, Emerald City Music aligns the mediums of film and live music together to explore the true diverse stories of Pacific Northwesterners that coalesce to define one word: “mother.” These challenging and inspirational accounts – as told by community members and captured by filmmaker Carlin Ma – are presented alongside works by Dvorák, Brahms, Anna Clyne, and more that musically give voice to this ubiquitous theme.
