Last summer, we had the pleasure of visiting Crescent Beach in Maine to partake in a truly unique walking processional musical concert along the shore, presented by the organization Vigorous Tenderness. Described as an immersive outdoor concert series that amplifies marginalized voices in classical music and democratizes new/experimental music, Vigorous Tenderness provided a truly remarkable experience. We are delighted to share one of the many images we captured, which vividly documents the resounding success of this captivating public art event.
In this photo: hundreds of community members, neighbors, strangers, and friends gathering with a shared purpose—to stroll along the Maine shore, feeling the gentle sand beneath our feet and the refreshing ocean breeze on our faces, while being serenaded by meticulously curated live music. None of us departed from this enchanting experience unchanged; we were all spellbound.
As audience members, we were utterly captivated by the dedication and individuality showcased at each music station, as well as the immense talent displayed by the musicians who wholeheartedly poured their souls into their performances for us and the sea.
Our heartfelt appreciation goes out to everyone involved in making these moments so incredibly special. If you haven't yet had the opportunity to attend one of these concerts, we wholeheartedly encourage you to do so. You won't want to miss out on the transformative magic that awaits.
