This concert program will trace stages in the journey of a meaningful relationship: lowering one’s defenses, expressing desire and devotion, risking emotional injury, gaining mutual consent, healing from harm and brokenness, navigating through resentfulness, arriving at forgiveness, and emerging once more into the world, ready to be vulnerable yet again.

Giving voice to texts by James Baldwin, Olympe de Gouges, Bei Dao, Paul Laurence Dunbar, e. e. cummings, Hāfez, Jennifer Powers, Rainier Maria Rilke, Rabindranath Tagore, and William Carlos Williams, The Esoterics’ VULNERABILITY will feature guest clarinetist Dallas Neustel and guest cellist Willie Braun, and include music by Abbie Betinis, Anna-Karin Klockar, Evan Flory-Barnes, Reena Esmail, Ted Hearne, Jennifer Higdon, David Lang, Tebogo Monnakgotla, Roxanna Panufnik, August Read Thomas, Mari Ésabel Valverde, and a commissioned world premiere — This song, I sing — by New York composer Philip Wharton.
