Watch the concert in advance

In John Cage's world, songs can be eaten, breathed, slept, recited, typed, clothed, navigated, and yes, sometimes even sung. There is hope for a world where everything can be song! 

At Yellow Barn, Lucy Shelton's "summer of Cage" began with this week's Patio Noise concert and his setting of Friedrich Schiller's Die Hoffnung (Hope)

And what the inner voice speaks
will not mislead the soul that hopes. 

In this program, Cage, Schubert, Kirsten, LaPlante, Hosokawa, and Beethoven all give voice to this hope, finding its reflection in love and the beauty of our world.

Also on the program: A video exploration of Beethoven Walks trails in Putney

Guest from the July 25th performance:
Lizzie Burns, double bass
Lucy Fitz Gibbon, soprano
Travis Laplante, saxophone
Eduardo Leandro, percussion
Lucy Shelton, soprano

Special guest: Daniel McCusker, dancer and choreographer

The Yellow Barn Resiliency Fund for Music and Musicians

To continue responding to present day realities, we need everyone with us. Today we are creating the Yellow Barn Resiliency Fund for Music and Musicians. $25,000 in matching funds are already on the table, and gifts between $250 and $500 will be matched dollar for dollar by those who have already come forward.

It is essential that we meet this challenge. We have so much more work to do. Music is essential, musicians are indispensable, and Yellow Barn has never been more necessary.
