The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and the Pulitzer Arts Foundation present contemporary chamber music performed in response to the art on view. The 2021 Fall season is curated by Tim Munro, Creative Partner at the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and Grammy Award-winning flutist.
St. Louis Symphony Orchestra musicians will be performing two free outdoor concerts on September 27 and 28. John Luther Adams’ songbirdsongs will transform Park-Like into a musical forest. Located across the street from the museum, Park-Like’s garden walking paths and seating provide a unique setting for these performances combining music, people, plants and wildlife. Musicians will be dispersed throughout Park-Like, and attendees are encouraged to wander. Personal lawn chairs and blankets are welcome.
American composer John Luther Adams lived for 40 years in the wilds of Alaska, and his works are inextricably linked with the natural world, giving voice to nature’s beauty, danger and fragility. In songbirdsongs, piccolos and percussion surround the audience, playing choruses of dawn and dusk.
