Live Uncommon Deep Listening

The Concordia University Ann Arbor Kreft Arts Program presents a year-long residency with Fifth House Ensemble dedicated to the practice of Deep Listening.


This series of online workshops is open to the entire CUAA community, including students, faculty, staff, students, and other Kreft Arts Program supporters. There are three workshops scheduled for October 2020, and another 10 workshops throughout the spring 2021 semester.

Deep Listening is a practice that provides a space for intentional reflection, which feeds into our writing and composing practices.

Writers, musicians, actors, artists, photographers, and more are encouraged to attend.

In this time of added stress, anxiety, and uncertainty, Deep Listening can lead to peace, reflection, and fun through listening, moving, and sounding exercises. Visit Fifth Harmony Ensemble’s project page for Deep Listening to learn more.
