Info

Children and adults are invited to listen to music performed live by the Cassatt String Quartet and Music Mountain artistic director Oskar Espina Ruiz, clarinet. Participants can translate what they hear in that music into a personal work of art that they can take home. Canvas, paints and brushes are provided free of charge.  Local and New York City-based artist Vincent Inconiglios leads this outdoor activity again this year to get everyone's creativity flowing.

The program includes Gerald Cohen's Clarinet Quintet "Voyagers" (2018); Samantha Pollack's String Quartet "Myco-Communication" (2019); and Daniel Armetta's String Quartet "Rough Edges" (2019). Composers Pollack and Armetta will be present at the event to introduce their work prior to the performance.

Cohen's "Voyagers" has a special connection to Music Mountain. It was performed at Painting Music in 2018 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the launch of the Voyager into space, and it inspired the artwork currently on the stage of Music Mountain's Gordon Hall: a 24-foot-wide acrylic, oil and charcoal on canvas by Vincent Inconiglios. The artwork draws on the image of the Golden Disk (with sounds and images representing life on Earth) that the Voyager carried into space and depicts what the disk might represent for humankind.

Space and supplies are limited for all hands-on sessions. 
Participants are asked to register by August 20 to reserve a spot.
