"Whenever the poet is seated on the Muse's tripod, he is not in his senses, but resembles a fountain, which gives free course to the upward rush of water" - Plato

For centuries, artists, poets and musicians have been passionate and frenzied workers, drawing inspiration from the work that surrounds them. No song is truly unsung, as music holds its roots in the sounds and images that have influenced its creator.

Join Ensemble MUSE in an exploration of inspiration, performing works that were inspired by art, poetry, and prose. Provoking classical chamber music, projections of artwork and poetry, and a showcase of graphic scores.
