|Electric Earth Concerts is delighted to present “The Wind in High Places”, a concert for the longest day of the year. The concert is on June 21 at 7 pm, in Bass Hall in Peterborough. EEC’s midsummer begins with music that celebrates the natural world, including the classic Voice of the Whale by the late, great George Crumb (1929-2022); The Wind in High Places by John Luther Adams, who “brings the sense of wonder that we feel outdoors into the concert hall”; and a new piece by David Kirkland Garner, one of the creators of EEC’s 2018 eco-cantata, A Forest Unfolding. Featuring Maiani da Silva and Kako Miura, violins, Molly Morkoski, piano, and Robert Burkhart, cello. George Crumb was the winner of Grammy and Pulitzer Prizes. His music often juxtaposes contrasting musical styles, ranging from music of the western art-music tradition, to hymns and folk music, to non-Western music traditions. Many of Crumb’s works include programmatic, symbolic, mystical and theatrical elements, which are often reflected in his beautiful and meticulously notated scores. John Luther Adams is an American composer whose music is inspired by nature, especially the landscapes of Alaska, where he lived from 1978 to 2014. His orchestral work Become Ocean was awarded the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Music. To share our concerts with as many of you as we can and so that everyone will feel safe and comfortable, we will offer two ways to hear our concerts this summer. Admission to Bass Hall is $30. Or bring a chair or a blanket, sit outdoors, and listen for free from outside, enhanced by an excellent sound system.
