More about the 2019 Listening Reels:

Each Listening Reels transformed one of the 2019 Conference Breakout Session rooms (Adler) into an audio theater, lights out, sound all-around. Each & every reel featured at least one winning story (!) from the 2019 Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition. After being absorbed in listening inspiration, audience members came together for conversation, guided by the host, and any/all producers of the featured pieces in the room.
