The Aurora Borealis Duo

Reflections is a musical commentary of a year in silence. Throughout the pandemic, musical voices have been filtered through masks, electronic channels, and the radically shifted world. Here, we reflect on the isolation and celebrate the return of live music. Featuring new works by Stephen Solook and Tiffany Du Mouchelle created in response to the events of the past year, the program is a reflection of their musical growth during this time.
