Music Speaks is CAG’s premiere series, co-presented with Merkin Hall, in which we feature the winners of the annual CAG ​Victor Elmaleh Competition. The Music Speaks concert experience is a non-traditional format in which the artist weaves together music-making and storytelling based on unique themes related to their mission and passions. Music Speaks addresses the question of how ​music speaks to us and, in turn, creates change in the world. Music Speaks will have its debut season in Spring 2021 with dates to be announced soon!
