(BOSTON) In an attempt to help bring healing and consolation to its neighbors, The Boston Conservatory is offering free seats to all shows for its presentation of Reflections: Love, Loss and Living; a first-of-its-kind inter-divisional performance project showcasing works from the Dance, Music and Theater divisions.  Performances are Thursday—Saturday at 8 p.m. and Saturday at 2 p.m. Tickets are available for free, but must be booked in advance by calling the Box Office at (617) 912-9222

"We believe that this show in particular can help people in the Boston community begin to process the tremendous loss we've all felt for the past couple of days," said Richard Ortner, President. "The artistic expression and emotions this show touches is something that everyone should be able to experience."

Reflections: Love, Loss and Living showcases works from the Dance, Music and Theater divisions that explore the universal human experience of loss and grief, and how humans overcome these experiences with resilience, hope and the strength of community. Mainstage performances will include a world premiere inspired by Alzheimer’s caretakers by choreographer Peter DiMuro, D-man in the Waters by Bill T. Jones, excerpts from Bill Russell and Janet Hood’s Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens and additional selections of theater and music work.

The event is produced by Theater Division Director Neil Donohoe and associate produced by Dance Division Director Cathy Young and Music Division Associate Director Lawrence Isaacson.
