4/7/17 - Hunter Noack's In A Landscape: Classical Music in the Wild

Sunnylands Center & Gardens , 37977 Bob Hope Dr, Rancho Mirage, CA 92270
at the site of Desert X artist Lita Albuquerque's hEARTH

Free and open to the public

Pianist Hunter Noack brings his silent disco-style concert series, IN A LANDSCAPE: CLASSICAL MUSIC IN THE WILD to Desert X artist Lita Albuquerque's installation at Sunnylands Center & Gardens in Rancho Mirage. Noack performs live on a concert grand piano, and audience members have the choice to listen acoustically or via wireless headphones. The headphones give listeners the freedom to explore the surrounding landscape, take in art from all angles, and enjoy a private outdoor odyssey, all without missing the show. IN A LANDSCAPE, presented by Noack and Desert X, is music for the public that celebrates the location itself and the art within it as much as the music played. IN A LANDSCAPE: Classical Music in the Wild concert series is made possible in part by Terri and Jerry Kohl, Ruth Eliel, and Jordan Schnitzer.
