What’s Your Story? Del Sol String Quartet Performs Music by Gabriela Lena Frank, Lembit Beecher, Huang Ruo
October 8, 2016, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Del Sol String Quartet will perform three concerts, thematically focusing on three approaches to expression. Finding parallels in the art in the exhibition and the music performed, the students will have the opportunity to make art engaging some of the same elements in projects geared to the musical manifestations of these elements.
There are three planned performances as part of the Fall residency. Suggested donation of $10 for adults attending the concert.
About this event: This second performance reveals narrative elements in music. In parallel, the work of artist Hung Liu examines the unfolding of history, ideas of portrait and identity, and the power of art and music to create the beauty, hold memory, and draw on that energy to inspire.
In the Second Session we will take the work of Hung Liu as a point of departure for an unfolding of personal history, ideas of portrait and identity, and the power of art and music to create the beauty, hold memory, and draw on that energy to inspire. The music of the second concert will open a world in which students can enter and expand to render their own vision of home, dream, family, or self. In contrast to a linear narrative, students will be guided to think in layers, multiple perspectives, and spiraling space. A symbolic use of color and the development of symbols will be presented as building blocks for a personal codex. Students will first work individually on a small scale personal piece and then collaboratively with an associated prompt.
The art workshop following the performance is intended for middle school children. All ages are welcome for the musical performance.
Music performance begins at 2:00 p.m.
Art workshop begins at 3:00 p.m.
