Transport to the desert with a music inspired by the desert accompanied by a slideshow of original works
(Egg Harbor) Join the Kress Pavilion and Violinist, Beth Chafey-Hon for an afternoon of live music inspired by the desert wilderness. Let yourself be inspired by the sounds of the arid landscape and wildlife with supporting strings music. Assembled by Chafey-Hon, the complimenting slideshow features rock formation and sand sculpted by the wind in contrast to beautiful photography of the vibrant Door County Landscape.
Multimedia elements and music will come together with a dance performance by Andria’s Dancin’ on the Door students, reminiscent of the tranquil drifting sand dunes and little creatures of the desert and woodland forest. Various live world percussion will accompany a few of the pieces. The concert proceeds will benefit the Kress Pavilion programming and all attendees will receive a free copy of the Desert Song Cycle Album. A pre-concert mingle with refreshments will begin at 2pm, with the performance to follow at 2:30pm.
Chafey-Hon calls Door County home, but finds this album inspired by the spirituality of nature and her childhood homeland of the of San Diego county. This performance is a precursor to a much-anticipated live debut in Hawk Canyon in Anza Borrego State Park on Saturday, Feb. 29, 2020, which is Leap Day. This concert in the wilderness is sponsored by the Anza Borrego Foundation, supporting the state park. Nature sings on the wind. Join us to celebrate.
