Program notes

See Me is an original musical film about the power of hope and connection during a global pandemic. Filmed as a cinematic musical experience, See Me weaves musical contributions by orchestras and choirs in Afghanistan, Austria, Brazil, China, Italy, South Africa and the United States (with an inspiring appearance by Yo-Yo Ma!) into a singular zeitgeist-capturing moment. 

Conceptualized by Marin Alsop (who also directed the music) and Nico Daswani, the film was produced and filmed in the fall of 2020 in the face of the extraordinary challenges of the COVID-19 era as a testament to the perseverance of artists and the universal need for self-expression. Created in collaboration with women conductors and young musicians from around the world, the film gestures toward the possibility of a new, more inclusive post-pandemic era in classical music and beyond.
