The Music of Landscapes
Thursday February 28, 2 – 4:30 p.m.
Saturday March 2, 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Rich with meaning and memories, our favorite landscapes speak to us in many ways: joy, beauty, nostalgia, awe, even dissonance. How do composers capture the essence of the land in music? Join OSMP naturalist Dave Sutherland for a beautiful hike to sample music that invokes our sense of place, including works by home-grown composer Kristin Kuster, whose composition Dune Acres will be featured at the Boulder Philharmonic concert on March 2. How would you express your memories of your favorite landscapes through music? Meet at the Lehigh Street entrance to Shanahan Ridge (map search 1903 Lehigh in Boulder, where Lehigh and Lafayette Streets intersect). Please bring strap-on traction for your footwear, since trails can be slick and icy.
