Center to host concert
CURTIS – Internationally acclaimed musician Lauren Pelon will appear in a unique concert at the Erickson Center for the Arts on May 8 at 7 p.m. Under the title “Earth Tones”, Pelon will perform on approximately twenty ancient and modern wind, string and freereed instruments, and voice.
Earth Tones features songs from around the world and Pelon’s own compositions.
The music and narrative reflect our engagement with Nature, our concerns about our rivers, lakes, soil, plant life, and the great personal and social issues we face in creating a sustainable life for the Earth and its creatures, including ourselves.
Pelon plays an astonishing array of instruments. Among the instruments she will be using in this concert are Kiowa courting flute, concertina, pennywhistles, ocarina, eagle bone flute, guitar, recorders, lute, bowed psaltery, lyre, gemshorn, cornamuse, krummhorn, schreierpfeife, electric wind instrument and pedalboard.
In addition, an afternoon performance, funded by the Nancy A. and Richard P. Erickson Foundation will be held for fourth and fifth graders from the Newberry, Engadine and Curtis schools.
Tickets will be available at the door. Adult tickets are $10. Children are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. For more information, please contact Erickson Center for the Arts at (906) 586-9974.
