Sunday Meet the Artist Series - Winard Harper presents Gene Ghee A Music Sunrise
Con Vivo Music is celebrating Earth Day weekend with a unique performance of "Not Less Than the Good", a 60-minute musical sunrise and celebration of morning as embraced by Henry David Thoreau in “Walden". The music combines meditative saxophones, ambient synthesizers, narration of Thoreau’s “Walden”, and field recordings from a morning at Walden Pond. "Not Less Than the Good" is composed for the bicentennial of Thoreau’s birth (July 12, 2017).

"Not Less Than the Good" simulates a sunrise by combining the meditative playing of the saxophone quartet with ambient synthesizers. The music grows from a single quiet note, adding notes and timbres, growing in fullness and depth. Underneath this are sounds recorded during the pre-dawn and early morning hours at Walden Pond: a chorus of insects, the lone song of dawn’s first bird which is joined by others in a raucous counterpoint, and the splashing of morning swimmers. The hour-long performance is punctuated by readings of excerpts from “Walden", selected as a secular prayer of hope for enlightenment and performed by poet J. D. McClatchy.

FREE, all ages welcome
