Event description

Description

Tickets: FREE. Reservations required. $25 suggested ticket donation to support the project.

Hunter Noack performs live on a nine-foot Steinway concert grand piano at the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center in Baker City, Oregon. The 500 acre site tells the story of Oregon Trail pioneers, explorers, miners and settlers of the frontier west and includes remnants of the historic Flagstaff Gold Mine, actual ruts carved by pioneer wagons, and magnificent vistas of the historic trail route. The performance will take place in the center of the covered wagon circle.

ABOUT THE SERIES:

IN A LANDSCAPE 2017 presents 13 live concerts on a Steinway D piano in some of the most spectacular landscapes across Oregon and Southern Washington, from Astoria Column to the Alvord Desert, from Crater Lake to Baker City and Pendleton. Modeled after the trending “silent disco,” live solo piano and chamber music will be broadcast via radio transmitter to wireless headphones (100 available on first-come first-serve basis), giving concert-goers the freedom to watch the musicians, or wander through secret glens, lie in sunny meadows and roam old growth forests.

Hunter created this project in 2016 with government support from the Regional Arts & Culture Council, just as millions of Americans from 1935-1943 were hired by the U.S. Work Projects Administration (WPA). The WPA employed over 40,000 musicians, artists, writers, actors and directors to complete individual cultural projects as part of the WPA's Federal Project Number One. For information on all 2017 IN A LANDSCAPE concert dates and locations, visit the Organizer Profile page where you'll find links to this year's series in venues across Oregon and southern Washington.

Hunter and special guests [violinist Nicholas Crosa, cellist Pansy Chang, singer Katie Harman Ebner (Miss America 2002), Pink Martini band leader Thomas M. Lauderdale, members of Portland Chamber Orchestra, Rogue Valley Symphony, Eugene Symphony, Sunriver Music Fetival Young Artists Program, and Hood River String Quartet] will perform music of Liszt, Schubert, Brahms, Ravel, Bloch, and Cage.
