Soundpainting Workshop – Wednesday 6/20, 6:00 PM 

Whether you’re a tone-deaf accountant or a concert pianist, this Soundpainting workshop will enrich your life! Soundpainting is a form of music-making where a Soundpainter (or conductor) teaches the participants a series of hand gestures that correspond to musical sounds. Bring your voice, your instrument (kazoo…Stradivarius…cardboard box…), and we’ll teach you how to Soundpaint! No prior musical experience necessary. Participation is free. Appropriate for all ages. A limited number of pianos and auxiliary instruments will be available for participants who are unable to bring an instrument.

 

An Inside Look At New Music: Composer Talks!

Our Summer Festival next week features three fun and thought-provoking talks and demos by Nebula composers! Join Sarah Perske for an exploration of what it means to write both popular and “serious” music, hear Nathan Cornelius discuss the genesis of one of the quirkiest classical guitar works of the 21st century, and learn about what really goes into writing electroacoustic music with Stephen Bailey!

Monday 6/18 5PM

These talks are presented as part of Nebula Ensemble’s Summer Festival 2018 at Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church, Sanctuary, Main Building. See the full festival schedule here. All events are free and open to the public!
