This thesis will explore the contemporary evolution of the classical music concert by recording and analyzing the creation, development, production, and realization of an electroacoustic concert with a strong community engagement theme. The concert, entitled “Music That Binds Us”, blends audio recorded stories of participants with commissioned music for a set of pre-determined instruments to create a powerful and thought-provoking exhibit of the human experience. Risk-benefit analysis of potential complications, effective publicizing practices, organization and management of participants, and helpful guidelines to increase the efficacy of the community aspect are discussed.
