Art In Response to Art: Chamber Music Performance

October 24, 2020, 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM (CST)

—  The registration for this event has been closed.
Christian Petersen Art Museum

With the ISU Chamber Orchestra

Enjoy a unique sensory event as music and visual art come together and demonstrate the connections between artists with other artists and the people who experience art. This confluence of media expresses the diverse range of emotions, thoughts and ideas that can be articulated through artistic creation and consumption. Iowa State University’s Chamber Orchestra will perform J.S. Bach’s Musical Offering, BWV 1079 - No. 2 Ricercar à 6  as arranged by Anton Webern surrounded by the exhibition Who Am I? in the Christian Petersen Art Museum.

The evening will begin with remarks from Director of Orchestral Activities and conductor of ISU Symphony Orchestra Dr. Jonathan Govias and Educator of Visual Literacy and Learning Lilah Anderson, followed by the performance, closing remarks by the exhibition curator and Associate Curator of Collections and Education Adrienne Gennett and will conclude with time to view the exhibition.

A recording will be made of the performance and will be available to watch on the University Museums YouTube channel and social media outlets beginning October 28 for 30 days.
