Musical Hike: The Music of Landscapes

Musical Hike: The Music of Landscapes

Saturday, March 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
Shanahan Ridge
1903 Lehigh St
Boulder, CO 80305

This hike will also be held on Feb. 28.

The Boulder Phil and the City of Boulder Open Space & Mountain Parks (OSMP) have created an ongoing collaboration to connect community members with the natural world through music. This partnership includes guided musical hikes designed to complement specific works to be performed by the Boulder Phil. The hikes are free and open to the public.

Rich with meaning and memories, our favorite landscapes speak to us in many ways: joy, beauty, nostalgia, awe, even dissonance. How do composers capture the essence of the land in music? Join OSMP naturalist Dave Sutherland for a beautiful hike to sample music that invokes our sense of place, including works by home-grown composer Kristin Kuster, whose composition Dune Acres will be featured at the Boulder Philharmonic concert on March 2.

How would you express your memories of your favorite landscapes through music?  Meet at the Lehigh Street entrance to Shanahan Ridge (map search 1903 Lehigh in Boulder, where Lehigh and Lafayette Streets intersect). This location is served by the southbound SKIP bus. Please bring strap-on traction for your footwear, since trails can be slick and icy.
