In Performance: Works by John Luther Adams

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

John Luther Adams returns to Banff Centre, reprising his historic visit in 2009 at which his Inuksuit was premiered. We celebrate his great percussion pieces, themselves indebted to the natural world, in a performance on the grounds of Banff. A younger generation is represented by Canadian’s Vivian Fung and Michael Oesterle, along with young Icelandic superstar Anna Thorvaldsdottir.

Performance will begin on the lawn in front of Music and Sound Building on the lawn at 7 P.M. and then continue in Rolston Recital Hall at 8:30 P.M, featuring faculty and participants from the Piano-Composer Collaborative and Roots and Rhizomes programs.
