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. 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.

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.

ABOUT THIS CONCERT VENUE:

A Klamath Indian legend tells of Llao, the Chief of the Below World, who had his throne on the rim of what is now Crater Lake and ruled over a race of giant crayfish living in the cold blue waters of the lake below. His archenemy Skell, the Chief of the Upper World, treacherously captured Llao and tore him apart, throwing the pieces into the lake. While the crayfish were eating the bits of flesh, Skell tossed the head of the dismembered Llao into the lake. The crayfish suddenly realized that they were feasting on their Chief, and were so grief stricken that they wept in anguish,their tears filling the lake to its present level. Llao's head became an island, now known as Wizard Island. Thanks to Dartmouth.edu for this information.
