LIVE MUSIC: THE RITES OF SPRING MUSIC FEST presents LIMINAL HIGHWAY hosted by The Custer Observatory
June 8, 2019 @ 7:00 pm$10 – $30
Grammy-award winning flutist Tim Munro performs a solo flute concert with electronics accompaniment in the theme of finding comfort in a world of craziness. The first five short-ish pieces will be like prayers (calm, meditative), preparing the audience for composer Christopher Cerrone’s final piece ‘Liminal Highway’, which takes the listener on more dramatic journey. Christopher Cerrone conjures sonic environments. His magnetic music surrounds listeners, painting landscapes, bringing to the surface raw emotions. This program provides a snapshot of the composer through new and in-progress works. In the course of one hour performance, the audience will hear the flute, guitar, beer bottles and song. Liminal Highway, written by Cerrone for flutist Tim Munro, evokes the sensation of this moment. Layer upon layer of flute sounds shimmer, pulse and glow, creating a radiantly beautiful sonic mirage. Tim Munro is a Chicago-based, double-Grammy-winning musician. His diverse work as a flutist, speaker, writer and teacher is united by a single goal: to draw audiences into an engrossing and whimsical musical world. Winner of a 2015 Rome Prize and a finalist for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize, the Brooklyn-based composer Christopher Cerrone is internationally acclaimed for compositions which range from opera to orchestral, from chamber music to electronic. Throughout, his music is characterized by a subtle handling of timbre and resonance, a deep literary fluency, and a flair for multimedia collaborations. Stargazing (weather permitting) will follow. $25 Advance/$30 at the door. $10 Student 13-18. Children under 13 – Free. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/liminal-highway-tickets-59849586725
