Located in rural Ghent, just outside of Hudson, the 300-acre campus of Omi International Arts Center is a not-for-profit arts organization with residency programs for international visual artists, writers, musicians, and dancers. Omi’s Fields Sculpture Park, with over 80 oversized works by some of the medium’s most accomplished and daring contemporary artists, makes the site one of the region’s must-visit destinations. And this Saturday, March 2, the abstract sculptures will provide the inspiration for an evening the center has dubbed a “Candlelight Concert of Ethereal Improvised Music.”

Performing at the event is the ensemble Chemical Composition (Constance Cooper on piano, Thomas Desisto on electric guitar, and John Cacciatore on percussion), which will be joined by guest artist Jeffrey Lependorf on traditional Japanese shakuhachi and Chinese xiao and bawu bamboo flutes. The concert will also celebrate the release of Notes are Rain, Timber is Snow, Chemical Composition’s newest release of modern improvised chamber music. Complimentary prosecco, mulled cider, and homemade cookies will be served.

Tickets are $10 (free for Friends of Omi members). For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit: www.omiartscenter.org.
