Sonic Meditation at Sunset with Composer Evan Premo
Friday, March 6, 6 p.m.
Hermitage Artist Retreat beach, 6630 Manasota Key Road, Englewood, FL 34223
Vermont-based teaching artist/composer Evan Premo will talk about and share a recording of his own environmentally themed music. Then he will lead the group through sonic meditations designed for groups of people to find connection and peace through deep listening and spontaneous sounding.
Evan, a double bassist and composer, is a member of the New York City-based chamber music collective, DECODA. He is the artistic director and founder of Beethoven and Banjos, a festival that brings together folk and classical musicians for cross-genre concerts in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. He is also the co-founder and co-artistic director of Scrag Mountain Music. According to Hermitage curatorial council member Eric Booth, Evan is “one of the best classical musician teaching artists anywhere.”
