It’s said that music can heal. Well, Re:Charge — a joint holistic event by Creative City Project and Timucua Arts Foundation — is explicitly leveraging that power. Beginning tonight and going through next weekend, the Re:Charge series is somewhere between a concert and meditation.

A big, empty space in the Colonial Promenade shopping center will be decked out in clouds and candles while an accomplished nine-player ensemble under the direction of Timucua Executive Director Chris Belt play a live 75-minute orchestral performance to heal your busted soul. Each attendee will be allotted their own personal space to lie down in; just bring your own yoga mat, pillow or woobie. And wine — the king of all relaxing things — will be available for a donation.

The program will feature a mix of contemporary and classical music by composers Anthony R. Green, Jordan Nobles, Ian Clarke, Katie Mess, J. S. Bach, Astor Piazzolla and Gerald Law II, along with collective improvisations. And the ensemble will star:

Chris Belt - music direction and guitar
Katie Mess - flute
Natalie Grata - clarinet
Beatriz Ramirez - oboe
Gerald Law II - percussion and electronics
Elizabeth A. Baker - electronics
Charles Edouard Glazer - violin/viola
Jean-Marie Glazer - cello and voice
Brandon Miller - bass

Each evening will have two performances, at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. The event address is 4644 E. Colonial Drive, Suite 4308, Orlando, FL, 32803. And tickets are available here.
