Pandora's Gift

Reimagine the ancient tale of Pandora's Box through a modern lens. The familiar "Simple Gifts" melody is woven throughout the show in many different ways. Also includes "Kaleidoscope of Mathematics" by John Horner and "Imagine" by John Lennon.

  • Unveiling - the box is revealed with the Simple Gifts melody leading a beautiful full ensemble introduction
  • Unleash Chaos - the driving, constantly evolving harmonies from "Kaleidoscope of Mathematics" lead the audience through the initial chaos of the opening of the box
  • Curiosity - John Lennon's "Imagine" provides the backdrop as we look back into the box to see what Pandora might have left behind
  • Hope Remains - the final movement is centered on the discovery of Hope inside the box. The music shifts to a more uplifting and hopeful tone symbolizing the endurance of hope amidst adversity
