The Music of Landscapes: Gritty & Pretty

 10/06/2019  |  02:00 PM - 05:00 PM
  Shanahan Ridge / Lehigh

Arts & Music

Rich with meaning and memories, our favorite landscapes speak to us in many ways: joy, beauty, nostalgia, awe, even dissonance. How do composers capture the essence of the land in music? At its next concert, the Boulder Philharmonic will explore both the gritty and the pretty aspects of landscapes with works by Jon Lord and Jonny Greenwood. Join OSMP naturalist Dave Sutherland for a pre-concert hike to sample this and other music that invokes our sense of place. Meet at the Lehigh Street entrance to Shanahan Ridge (map search 1903 Lehigh in Boulder, where Lehigh and Lafayette Streets intersect). Free parking is available along the street. This location is served by the southbound SKIP bus. This program is free and open to the public. For more information and to purchase tickets for the concert, please visit the Boulder Philharmonic’s website:
