In a Landscape

If you didn’t get a chance to experience “In a Landscape,” (IAL)—a confluence of music, nature, and technology, last year at Smith Rock, now’s your chance. The first performance in July sold out before we could tell you about it, but another has been added, for September 11.
Hunter Noack performs live outdoors on his 9-foot Steinway grand piano. He hauls it on his performing platform to the middle of forests, fields, calderas and historical sites for classical music concerts. And back by popular demand, to Smith Rock.
