Past Concerts

Chameleon Arts Ensemble

The Chameleon Arts Ensemble, a Boston-based group of musicians, approached the museum mid-summer 2020, looking for a place to record a chamber music program outdoors. The concert would be filmed at social distance, without an audience. Their intention was to stream the performance later in the fall, as part of their visual concert season.

They spent two days at the museum, recording out on the museum grounds. The concert, titled “communing with nature,” includes:

  • A selection of duos for two violins by Bela Bartok
  • Franz Joseph Hayden’s sparking C Major String Quartet, Op. 33, No. 3, “The Bird”
  • John Luther Adam’s stunningly beautiful songbirdsongs for two piccolos and three percussion

The result is an intimate dialogue between people, music, and nature.
