Vigorous Tenderness: a winter solstice concert
388 Broadturn Road
Scarborough, ME 04074
Join us for an evening of darkness and light to reconnect with acoustic sound in observance of the winter solstice.
Vigorous Tenderness is a seasonal outdoor, distanced concert series that amplifies marginalized voices in classical music and democratizes the experience of new and experimental music. This winter solstice event will resemble an art museum experience, with chamber music and fire illuminating the landscape while the audience follows a path of listening and reflection. Bundle up!
With music by Ella Jarman Pinto, Jessie Montgomery, Anthony R Green, Mary Prescott, deVon Russell Gray, Raven Chacon, and more.
Featuring Annea Lockwood’s Piano Burning, and a world premiere by Liz Rhaney in response to Piano Burning.
The rain/snow date for this event is Wednesday, December 22, 2021.
Please arrive between 5:30pm and 6:15pm, and plan to move through the installation at your own pace.
