String Theory in the Parks
A day of outdoor performances in Coolidge and Miller Parks
Saturday, October 27, 2018
10:00am Children’s Concert at Miller Park
1:00pm Inuksuit at Coolidge Park
Hailed by the Washington Post as a group that is “revitalizing the world of contemporary music”, Sandbox Percussion will join String Theory for a week of outreach and performances. Following their mainstage performance at the Hunter Museum on Tuesday, October 23, Sandbox Percussion’s residency will culminate in a performance of the groundbreaking work Inuksuit by the Pulitzer-winning composer John Luther Adams. Described by the New York Times as “the ultimate environmental piece,” this outdoor concert experience will take place on Saturday, October 27 at Coolidge Park with musicians performing throughout the park. Listeners are invited to wander, each creating their own unique experience during this hour-long monumental work.
This event will be preceded by a special children’s concert at the newly renovated Miller Park featuring the Trash Can Band from the Arnold Elementary School (Cleveland, TN), groups from Hamilton County Schools, and the String Theory Youth Internship. Come and celebrate this family-friendly day of music, food trucks, and more!
