Event description

Description

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

As part of Hood River's Performing Arts Initiative kick-off celebration, Hunter Noack performs live outdoors on a nine-foot Steinway concert grand piano at the mission style Columbia Gorge Hotel in Hood River, overlooking the Columbia River Gorge. This concert is aimed to raise awareness and interest in the future multi-use 600-seat performing arts center that will be the home and showcase for a wide range of local and national talent, used year-round.

ABOUT THE CONCERT SERIES:

IN A LANDSCAPE 2017 presents 13 live concerts 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, 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.

MORE ABOUT THIS VENUE:

The Columbia Gorge Hotel is a historic hotel in Hood River, built by Simon Benson, who was is responsible for the “benson bubblers” free fountains across Portland, preserving the Columbia River Gorge by purchasing 400 acres that includes Wahkeena Falls and Multnomah Falls and deeding it to the City of Portland, and Benson was instrumental in the construction of the Historic Columbia River Highway. He envisioned a hotel at the end of the highway, and completed the Mission style hotel in 1921.
