THE RITES OF SPRING NEW MUSIC ENSEMBLE
NEW MUSIC UNDER THE BIG SKY
Due to the outdoor nature of this show, a rain date is scheduled for June 19 at 7:30pm. Please bring a blanket or chair to enjoy this outdoor presentation.
New Music Under The Big Sky will take you on a journey to create an immersive musical evening like nothing you have experienced before. The performance features Rites of Spring New Music Ensemble (R o S Ensemble), a group that embodies the spirit of the new music culture and is dedicated to performing innovative, collaborative, and exciting works of living composers and the contemporary works from composers of the recent past.
Whether you’re a classical lover or a lover of extraordinary experiences, Music in The Sky pushes the boundaries of a traditional music event. This program presents new music by Hull, Seo, Andres, Crowell and classic contemporary music by Steve Reich for a very exciting evening of music and stargazing!
Come and slow down with us, be immersed with music, lights and stars!
