11/11: Juventas Performs Watershed

October 23, 2023

Juventas will perform Oliver’s quintet Watershed in it’s November 11 concert “Encore!”, a special programming featuring nature-themed audience favorite from the past five years.

Written during the COVID-19 pandemic, Watershed was inspired by one of Oliver’s favorite walks along the Mystic River in Massachusetts.

“From the boat launch in Medford Square, just a few blocks from my house, I meander for miles upriver, eventually reaching a series of gleaming lakes. While this urban oasis has provided solace and inspiration for years, in 2020 it became something more: a lifeline. Amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic and the claustrophobia of staying home for extended periods, this green corridor quiets my mind and fills my soul with light. I return over and over again, finding hope in the enduring beauty of the natural world.”

Watershed is a Finalist for the 2023 American Prize. It’s also the title track from Oliver’s 2021 chamber album with Juventas.
