Rainer Crosettis creating Project LENS: Our First Season
About Rainer Crosett
At Project LENS, classical music has been our shared passion ever since we were young. We’re also curious people who love to learn new things. As a result, none of us has ever managed to commit fully either to pursuing music or giving it up to study something else. When the time came at the end of high school for us to think about whether we wanted to go to college or conservatory, we all decided to pursue joint degrees in music and other fields. Even after we finished college, we still couldn’t decide what to do, and in a way, Project LENS was born out of this indecision. We like to think of it as productive indecision, though, because really, we’ve realized that being attuned to other disciplines and ways of thinking even as we pursue music has helped us discover some pretty cool connections between music and topics ranging from philosophy to art history to neurobiology. We want to share these unexpected and exciting relationships with you, and that’s why we founded LENS.
