INUKSUIT, at Schuylkill Banks Park
September 23, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFREE
Orchestra 2001 presents this free outdoor concert featuring music by Composer/Conservationist John Luther Adams, made possible by a “New Audiences/New Places” grant from the William Penn Foundation. Bring a folding chair or stroll among the musicians during the performance.
Described by The New York Times as “the ultimate environmental piece,” and by Alex Ross of The New Yorker as “One of the most rapturous experiences of my listening life,” John Luther Adams’ INUKSUIT is played by dozens of percussionists and piccolo players dispersed in large outdoor areas, using an incredible array of instruments including conch shell horns, sirens, gongs, bells, drums, cymbals, and glockenspiels.
