Mark Di Suvero: Tabletops

Saturday, December 3, 8–11 p.m.

In conjunction with the exhibition Mark di Suvero: Tabletops, SMTD's Contemporary Directions Ensemble (dir. Christopher Lees) aims to extend and invert the traditional concert experience. Integrating music of diverse 20th and 21st century composers, and inspired by the perceptual experience of sculpture, the performance explores the effects of depth, color, and shadow on the listener.

The SMTD@UMMA concert series is made possible in part by the Katherine Tuck Enrichment Fund.
