An Interactive Virtual Concert Experience!

The “’Invention & Alchemy’ Saturday Night OUT-In Soirée” is a FREE Virtual INTERACTIVE Concert Experience – a magical performance with an 80-piece symphony and an unusual soloist – with an electric harp, a powerful voice and stories to tell, a soloist who breaks down the 4th wall between audience and stage and brings you closer than the front row.  

The Soirée starts with a pre-show Cocktail & Lemonade party, then we all watch the feature concert “Invention & Alchemy” –  followed by a post-show “AMA” (“Ask Me Anything”) session with the star & composer. 

The feature presentation, “Invention & Alchemy” features Deborah Henson-Conant, conductor David Lockington & the Grand Rapids Symphony. You’ll be seeing the actual performance that won them a GRAMMY Nomination.

What is Invention & Alchemy?

“Invention & Alchemy” is a concert-length video of a live performance that brings the audience into the stories, music, humor and theater that reveal the world of one musician’s imaginationCreated almost 15 years ago, it wasn’t until THIS YEAR that it became available to the whole world, as streaming restrictions were lifted on the project for a limited time to be used as a fundraiser for the Grand Rapids Symphony during the COVID-19 pandemic.

What is a Soirée Screening?

In short: it’s an interactive virtual concert experience

You get 3 dimensions of music experience: 

  1. THE PERSONAL DIMENSION. You meet with the composer/star of this Grammy-Nominated concert-video for pre-show cocktails.
  2. THE PERFORMANCE DIMENSION. You get to watch a premiere performance, from the comfort of your home, with other viewers
  3. The Q&A: After the show, you meet Deborah and everyone who attended the show for the post-show Q&A. 

It’s a FREE cultural event, and also supports the symphony musicians.

It’s also a fundraiser for the Grand Rapids Symphony – the orchestra playing in the video. The goals is to create a cultural experience to uplift and inspire everyone – and to offer those who can, the opportunity to support the orchestra they see on the screen.

Everyone watches for free, to be inspired and uplifted.

Anyone can donate as much or as little as you want.

All are welcome!

In each location, this is the schedule:

  • PRE-SHOW MEET & GREET: Attendees will meet in a Zoom room for pre-show cocktails and introduction to Deborah Henson-Conant and Co-Host(s) – (yes, you can get dressed up!)
  • THE SHOW: When the screening starts, the Zoom room will remain open for optional questions & comments real-time
  • POST-SHOW Q&A: At the end of the screening guests will be invited back to the Zoom room for a post-show Q&A with DHC

This concert video was created to bring you INSIDE the music – closer than the front row.  The Soirée Screening was created to let you INTERACT with the music an the composer.
