Ithaca, NY—Inuksuit

October 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Fun Outdoor Music Event for the Whole Family!

Date: Saturday Oct. 22, 2:00pm, rain date Sunday Oct. 23, 2:00pm

Location: IC Quad (between fountain and Campus Center)

Cost: FREE!

Duration: About an hour, and you can come and go as you please

Come join the Ithaca College Percussion Ensemble in an engaging, theatrical, nature-inspired performance that will take place outside, on IC’s beautiful campus! You can bring people of all ages and can stay for the full piece (will roughly last 75 minutes) or just catch an excerpt. Audience members can walk around the space, and experience the music up close.

The composition being performed is Pulitzer-prize-winning composer John Luther Adams’ Inuksuit, based on Inuit rock sculptures, and will feature the full 20-person IC Percussion Ensemble playing drums, cymbals, gongs, shakers, sheets of metal, conch shell trumpets, sirens, glockenspiels and much more. It will be an event like you’ve never experienced before (unless you’ve seen this piece before!).

Parts of this piece may get loud, so you are welcome to bring earplugs. There will also be a few hand-cranked sirens during the piece, for about 15 minutes. Don’t worry, it’s not an emergency, it’s part of the piece!

Hope to see you there!
