Vellumsound, the MFA’s new resident ensemble, celebrates the rich intersection of visual art and music. Incorporating images, dance, spoken word, and literature—and inspired by the Museum’s renowned collection—each concert features a uniquely modern multimedia and musical take on traditional ensemble performance.
