Program note: Complacency Will Kill You (Contentment Is a Choice) was inspired by thoughts swirling around in my head about finding balance and happiness amidst uncertainty of present-day economies, the manipulations of capitalism and media, the atrocities that exist in the world, often swept under the rug or seemingly beyond our reach. A reminder to myself to seek knowledge, choose battles, keep giving back whenever possible, and know when to fold ‘em and let things go.
