Virtual Event/San Diego Museum of Art—Make Prayers to the Raven

March 16, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free – $10

This Tuesday, March 16, will be the exact one-year anniversary of California’s first official stay-at-home orders, so let’s make an exception. Mark the milestone with a virtual livestream of Art of Elan musicians and collaborators in the San Diego Museum of Art sculpture garden. Surrounded by the sculptures, they’ll feature works by contemporary composers Terry Riley, Jonathan Bailey Holland — his “Forged Sanctuaries” is really stunning — Hannah Lash and John Luther Adams, and musicians from Hausmann Quartet and the San Diego Symphony will perform. –Julia Dixon Evans, KPBS

A one-hour performance livestreamed from the May S. Marcy Sculpture Garden at The San Diego Museum of Art!

Inspired by The San Diego Museum of Art’s “Open Air” exhibit which includes the great sculptural works of Rodin, Zurbaran and Miro, this one-hour concert program will take place outdoors in the May S. Marcy Sculpture Garden at the Museum, encouraging listeners to truly engage with the open air and the transformations that can take place in nature over the course of an hour. Make Prayers to the Raven by John Luther Adams, Forged Sanctuaries by Jonathan Bailey Holland, and Tree Suite by Hannah Lash anchor this powerful program that features the Hausmann Quartet, among others.

Ticket purchasers will be provided with a link to watch the livestreamed concert and will have access to the video recording of the concert after the event has concluded.

“G Song” by Terry Riley featuring Hausmann Quartet
