Description

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

In partnership with Oregon State Parks, Hunter Noack performs live on a nine-foot Steinway concert grand piano at the Oregon State Capitol Mall in Salem.

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.

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.

ABOUT THIS CONCERT VENUE:

The main structure of our current State Capitol was completed in 1938, at the height of the Great Depression, with the help of the federal government. Sheathed in brilliant white Vermont marble, the building is a landmark example of Modernist Art Deco design. The pinnacle of the building is a gilded bronze statue of the Oregon Pioneer.
