1 pm Performance & RSVP

A 15-minute processional will begin in the Courtyard at 3 pm, with special participation by Boston Arts Academy students. A performance in Calderwood Hall will follow at 3:30 pm.

Highlighting stories of our time, local violinist and composer Shaw Pong Liu engages diverse communities through multidisciplinary collaborations, creative music, and social dialogue. Her recent project, Code Listen 3.0, reflects on the intertwining stories of Boston Police, teens, and mothers who have lost their children to gun violence in a citywide series of performances and conversations in Dorchester, Mattapan, and Fenway. Join us in Calderwood Hall for the culminating event: a public-facing, free performance and dialogue featuring local community organizations, including Legacy Lives On, the Boston Police Department, and family members surviving homicide, as well as guest musicians Nadia Washington, vocalist; Jason Palmer, jazz trumpet; Ashe Gordon, viola; and musicians from the Gardner's Orchestra-in-Residence, A Far Cry.


Event is free, but RSVP is required and space is limited. Please check in at the Admission Desk upon arrival.
