2022 Season

Enjoy videos from our 2022 season!

The theme for our 2022 Festival was ‘Bringing People Together’. Because of the stress, loneliness and isolation of the past year, Welltone New Music believes now is the time to bring people together with music that expresses uplifting spiritual themes of hope. To accomplish this, Cutting Edge Concerts will bring together four arts organizations during the 2022 season that share its vision, performing in different locations throughout the metropolitan area, along with live streaming offerings, and producing a season that powerfully expresses our theme.
