‘Inuksuit’ at Big Ears – 2pm

April 18, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:10 pm

John Luther Adams: INUKSUIT & Yaz Lancaster: sequoia
performed by Nief-Norf
Knoxville Botanical Gardens & Arboretum
Sunday, April 18 at 2PM & 5PM

Described as “…. the ultimate environmental piece” by the New York TimesInuksuit, is a 70-minute piece, featuring two dozen percussionists dispersed throughout the Botanical Gardens making it easy for audiences to enjoy the experience while maintaining safe social distance. The performance will be preceded by a presentation of Yaz Lancaster’s sequoia. The entire program will last approximately 75 minutes.

The work will be performed by the acclaimed Knoxville-based contemporary music ensemble, Nief-Norf, and offered free-to-the-public here at the Gardens. Big Ears previously worked with Nief-Norf to present Inuksuit as the fondly remembered closing event of the 2016 Big Ears Festival.
