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 our ORGANIZER PROFILE PAGE where you'll find links to this year's series of 13 concerts 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.

The Shire is a 78-acre, 1-mile stretch of the Columbia Gorge directly across the river from Multnomah Falls. Architect and conservationist John Yeon purchased the land in 1965 when it was threatened with industrial development. Over the next 25 years, he shaped it with meadows, trails, and plantings into series of captured views of the Gorge and falls. It is the birthplace of the Friends of the Columbia River Gorge and the successful effort to pass the 1986 scenic act that now protects 292,000 acres of the Gorge. The Shire is now owned by the University of Oregon's John Yeon Center for Architecture and the Landscape.
