Birdfoot Festival: Let There Be Night

May 31 at 8:00 pm10:00 pm

$15.00 – $25.00

Surely you’ve had them: late-night existential conversations, sleepless meditations, monsters under the bed that disappear with the light of dawn. Darkness and night have long been playgrounds for the imagination and metaphors for the unknown and unknowable. For J.S. Bach, music and text come together to re-enact and glorify spiritual mystery, while for contemporary composer Georg Friedrich Haas, mystery is revealed in the hidden spectrums of sound. Dive into the deep end for a program of music that reaches beyond.

Please note:
• The second half of the concert will be performed entirely in the dark.
• At 7 PM, this concert will be preceded by an Introduction to the Music by renowned speaker and presenter Patrick Castillo.
