SOUNDS MODERN PRESENTS:  

"AT HOME WITH THE MODERN" CONCERT

A free concert will be held to celebrate the  

10th anniversary of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

 

Sounds Modern presents At Home with the Modern, a concert in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Modern's Tadao Ando-designed building. Like the Modern's current exhibition, the program features favorites and some fresh new discoveries: chamber music of modern masters Philip Glass, Elliott Carter, John Cage, and Lou Harrison, maverick innovators Stuart Smith, Salvatore Sciarrino, and Chaya Czernowin, and a premiere from Marcos Balter.

 

Cage's Living Room Music will set the scene on Saturday, May 11 at 2 pm in the Modern's auditorium. Elizabeth McNutt (flute), Christopher Deane (percussion), Matt Albert (violin), Rachel Yoder (clarinet), and other stars of modern music in DFW will perform.

 

Sounds Modern brings you art like you've never heard it. In collaboration with the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, these concerts invite lovers of modern art to enjoy parallel directions in the world of modern concert music. Directed by flutist and modern music guru Elizabeth McNutt, the series brings a sonic dimension to the groundbreaking artwork presented at the Modern.
