Concert: Love Tokens

 

Love Tokens

Joe Chindamo, piano & Zoe Black, violin

This concert celebrates the unbreakable bonds we create throughout our lives, often despite the tyranny of distance and time. Love tokens are the gateways to our past and a reminder of those who have touched us most deeply.

Through his new set of compositions, Joe Chindamo with violinist Zoe Black explore what it means to attribute feelings to objects, or even to describe the object as the cause or inspiration of a feeling.
