reinventing the concert experience

Ringling International Arts Festival

  • The Ringling Museum (map)

Join us for two thoughtful programs in inspired spaces on the grounds of The Ringling Museum.


The two programs presented this weekend are juxtaposed by their focus and scope, designed to open the listener’s eyes and ears to the numerous shades of intimacy and perspective that can be created by live musical performance. "The Space Around You" looks beyond the individual performers and draws the audience into an experience that interacts with the inanimate body of James Turrell’s Joseph’s Coat. It provides a macro view of our surroundings, mirroring the atmosphere and changing light of the sky. "The Magical World of Berio’s Sequenzas" does the opposite, focusing intensely on the individual performer’s voice as virtuoso and soloist: a micro view of each performer and their instrument as they weave a journey through deeply personal human and musical expression.
