For this performance, musicians and audience members will mingle outdoors among the rustling trees, birds calling, and crickets chirping in Cathy’s Meadow, located a short distance from the art center’s Cottonwood Campus. While surrounded by nature, each participant will have the opportunity to hear their own unique version of songbirdsongs, an early composition by the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Luther Adams.

We will be joined by two remarkable flutists on the piccolos, including returning artist Brandon Patrick George, one of America’s leading flute soloists and a member of the 2021 Grammy-nominated Imani Winds, and Alex Sopp, a multifaceted musician, singer, and visual artist, who has toured and recorded with songwriters including Philip Glass, Nico Muhly, Paul Simon, Sufjan Stevens, and St. Vincent, among others.
