Present Music: “Thanksgiving”
Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist
812 N. Jackson St.
Since 1982, Present Music has delivered performances that push the boundaries of what a musical concert can be, often throwing conventional wisdom out the window in favor of elements like hand clapping, metronomes and ping-pong balls. For Thanksgiving, the ensemble collaborates with more than 100 musicians and singers from a cornucopia of choirs and orchestras to revive Henry Brant's live-action imagining of Leonardo da Vinci's scientific reflections, commissioned and premiered by Present Music in 2004.
