SHIFT 2019

Wander through a landscape of instruments—conch shells, gongs, drums, glockenspiels and more—in a subtle duet with the ambient sounds of nature. Named after the stone piles used by native people to orient themselves in Arctic spaces, Inuksuit was created by environmental composer John Luther Adams. This event will involve up to 99 professional and community musicians in an outdoor campus location.

Rain date: Sun, June 30 at 3 pm.
