Determination and Destiny

Tactus SF

Tactus SF Determination and Destiny

What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? Join Tactus in exploring this age-old question through the lens of music. Through haunting harmonies of adversity and iniquity gilded by glimmers of gumption and endurance, we craft a concert that pits perseverance against providence. Our program that is simultaneously about Josquin, and not, brings together motets of Josquin, Byrd, Lassus, Victoria, and others to ask: can Determination overcome Destiny?

Tactus will be joined by musical guests Mane Musica (early music brass quartet), Eugene Petrushansky (organ), Founding Director Tanmoy Laskar (flute), as well as the three finalists of our Determination and Destiny poetry contest.

This concert will be repeated in El Cerrito on the following day, January 20th, at 4pm. Visit for more information.
