There's a lot going on right about now. In the eye of the storm, we invite you to take an evening to pause, unplug (metaphorically), and listen. ARKAI presents their new, all-electric program 'Sonic Meditation'.


ARKAI Electric Violin/Cello Duo

From the traditional spiritual “Here’s One” to the timeless American classic “Somewhere Out There” to the ARKAI original “Letters from COVID”, ‘Sonic Meditation’ takes audiences on an epic, 40-minute, uninterrupted musical journey through life, loss, and hope.

I was blown away when you went all Philip Glass on me halfway through; I streamed it in the background while I work for the Smithsonians and was, literally, picking my jaw up off the floor. Exquisite...
