Our grounds are open! Open your ears and discover a world of fascinating sounds through our Sonic Innovations exhibition and live performances. Thereminist Dorit Chrysler performs and leads workshops on the world’s oldest electronic instrument. Jonny Allen interprets Iannis Xenakis’ multi-percussion piece Rebonds, as well as plays and jogs between nine suspended bells in excerpts of Tom Johnson’s Nine Bells. Be enthralled as pianist Conor Hanick “prepares” a grand piano by inserting bolts, screws, bits of rubber, and other items between the strings for John Cage’s complete Sonatas and Interludes. Meet the sound artists while you explore our innovative sound art collection and enjoy a deep sensory experience for the whole family. 

This event is FREE. / This event takes place in multiple different venues on our grounds, and most do not have seating available. If desired, you may bring your own seating.
