Allow the beautiful music and passionate artistry of the Hawkins Contemporary Jazz Company take you on a moving journey where the strings of your own heart will have no choice but to sing.

Heartstrings will take you on a journey where the past meets the present and love is the string that ties it together. You will witness love in action as we explore themes regarding equality, overcoming obstacles, and community. Featuring original music by composer Ryan Suleiman performed by a live piano quartet comprised of local musicians, this show will serve as a reminder that love is without a doubt something we can't live without.
