ABOUT THIS CONCERT VENUE:

Fort Rock is a nearly 4500-foot-tall volcanic ring located on an ancient dry lake bed in Lake County, Oregon. The nearby community of Fort Rock was established in 1908 and you can still visit the general store built over 100 years ago at the local Fort Rock Homestead Village Museum. Along with Silver Lake, Fort Rock is one of two remaining homestead-era communities in the area. See Travel Oregon's coverage of this unique Oregon landscape and traveler tips on TripAdvisor.

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.
