This year, the event is "Invoking the Muse: What Inspires You?" Fifth House Ensemble has been collaborating directly with six UIS faculty members who will explore the nature of inspiration in fields ranging from astronomy to fine arts. The scholars will share their own stories of inspiration and thoughts on how inspiration manifests itself in their individual fields. Intermixed with the presentations will be musical works by Astor Piazzolla, Philip Glass, and others, brought to life by piano, flute, oboe, and four strings.

Following the performance on February 15, the audience will be invited to participate in a post-show discussion with the musicians and scholars involved in the collaboration. We anticipate a lively discussion about the creative process with additional musings about inspiration will ensue. We hope you will join us.
