September 18 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PMFree
Gather Hear Utah features Boston-based concert pianist Miki Sawada performing across the state bringing classical music out of the concert hall and into the community.
Boston-based concert pianist Miki Sawada will tour across Utah with a piano in tow from August 29 – September 18 as part of the Gather Hear Tour. Sawada will perform 16 free events in 13 towns and cities across the state in community gathering spaces such as parks, public theaters, restaurants, schools, and libraries. The concert at Alliance Theatre will take place September 18th at 7:00pm, presented by Mundi Project.
In Gather Hear Utah, Sawada will tour with a program that takes the listener through a journey of varied sonic landscapes. Featured is an electro-acoustic work “A Kind of Mirror” by Brendon Randall-Myers, which is released on August 27 by Slashsound record label as Sawada’s debut album. As avid distance runners, Sawada and Randall-Myers’ shared experiences with trancelike flow states and extreme physical exertion are direct inspirations for the music. Also on the tour program will be an African-American spiritual arrangement by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, works by Franz Liszt, and a commissioned work by University of Utah School of Music faculty member Elisabet Curbelo.
