Seasonal Special Happenings

A Classical Case

When: Sat., Sept. 20 2014

It’s not often a Pulitzer Prize winning musician comes to town. With that in mind, an appearance by Alaskan classical composer John Luther Adams is all the more noteworthy. Tonight at 7 at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Adams will give a sneak-preview of Veils and Vesper, an immersive sound environment he created in 2005. You can enjoy the entire six-hour installation on Fridays and Saturdays at the church; the music plays from noon to 6 p.m., Sept. 26 through Dec. 1. Tomorrow at 2 p.m. at Lake View Cemetery, Adams will be on hand for Inuksuit, a site-specific, day-long piece for 99 percussionists that’s meant to be performed outdoors. Admission to both events is free. (Niesel)
