On June 12, the Arnold Arboretum and Kadence Arts host the Boston premiere of Inuksuit —a 75 minute work for percussion ensemble that is designed to heighten awareness of the sights and sounds that surround us every day.
Composed by Pulitzer Prize winner John Luther Adams and performed in major cities around the globe, this production will feature nearly 90 New England-based musicians. The performers will be dispersed throughout the conifer collection of the Arnold Arboretum, and audience encouraged to wander the area. Inuksuit is deeply influenced by John Luther Adams’ belief that “music can contribute to the awakening of our ecological understanding. By deepening our awareness of our connections to the earth, music can provide a sounding model for the renewal of human consciousness and culture.”
This event is free and open to all. Enter through the Bussey Street Gate, Arnold Arboretum.
