Have you ever felt oddly emotional when you went to a concert? Many thoughts and feelings that made we shed tears or smile unintentionally and it is not always easy for us to relate to those feelings.

What make we smile? What brings tears to our eyes?

We want you to join us and observe your own feelings that arise when listening to music together in “Echoes of Soul: A Night of Trasfigured Emotions” a concert that will create a space for everyone to be able to look back and observe their own emotions. With a concept from Receptive Music Therapy, a practice between the music therapist and participants to be applied in conjunction with musical performances by communicating with listeners through emotional reflections from music and drawing.

Because we believe that music can connect deeply with the human mind.
