What Is Noise at Berklee College of Music

What Is Noise collaborates with Berklee composer Eleanor Aversa and the Mother Jones Memorial in Mt. Olive, IL to perform Aversa's Victory at Arnot.

The story of the piece celebrates the courage to battle injustice, the value of teamwork, and the joy of finding creative solutions to seemingly intractable problems. In 1899, Mary "Mother" Jones came to a small Pennsylvania mining town to help with a strike for safer working conditions and a living wage. She insisted that resistance remain peaceful despite the illegal tactics used by the coal corporation. Then she organized an army of women, telling them to arm themselves with their mops and dishpans. “I abhor violence,” she said. “I favor drama…” The story also features union president William Wilson, an immigrant who had worked in the mines since he was eight years old. He later became our country’s first Secretary of Labor.

Meraki - Concert in the Crypt

Meraki will perform a program of music from various cultures, with the common theme being 'coming home.' Often times in life we travel, move, meet new people, and find homes away from home. This program was created to depict the spiritual journey that one continues on throughout their life as they live through experiences that shape who they are to become.
