"Songs and Stories My Mother Taught Me” is a curated event by  Patricia Wheeler (The Moth StorySLAM Ann Arbor and Detroit, Moth Radio Hour) and Sonya Belaya. The concert will pair live story-telling by Detroit-native storytellers (Patricia Wheeler, Satori Shakoor, Dameon Wilburn and Shannon Cason) with an indie-chamber song cycle entitled “Songs My Mother Taught Me”, composed by Sonya Belaya. The song cycle combines through-composed and improvised elements to tell the personal story of Sonya’s mother’s disappearance. Touching on themes of loss, motherhood, and creative identity, the performance serves as a vulnerable exploration for healing and self-understanding.

The event is presented as two acts with an intermission in between (7 pm and 8:30 pm). 
Audience members are encouraged to stay for both sets to experience the full performance.
