Roofless Music.

There was a beautiful concert of music Saturday morning early in Philip Johnson’s Roofless Church. Part of the New Harmony Music Festival & School. Music has been performed there only rarely since its dedication in 1960 (also the year of my own “grand opening” as a person).

New York musicians extraordinaire, violinist Arnaud Sussman and pianist Michael Brown played Ravel’s “Tzigane,” and Debussy’s “Clair de Lune” (it being the occasion of the full moon).

Also on the program was a fine 9-piece ensemble with strings, piano and flute; and the harpist Martha Waldvogel. Everything was lovely, but due to space, I’m only including photos of the piano moving (something of a novelty) and Arnaud and Michael warming up before the performance.
