Like tributaries that converge to form rivers that flow into the sea, communities are built by individuals who collaborate to achieve something greater than the sum of their parts. To the Sea draws on this idea, with individual musicians of the string quartet contributing musical fragments that weave together to form a larger melody. The title of the piece draws upon “Bike to the Sea,” a rails-to-trails project in Massachussetts designed to reclaim connections with the natural environment and link the communities of Malden, Everett, Revere and Saugus with the Lynn waterfront. For the past twenty years, “Bike to the Sea” has been a catalyst for community collaboration.
