TreePeople Coldwater Canyon Park Marmol Radziner + Associates (2004)
Michael Kaufman, Benjamin Lash, Yoshika Masuda, Gabriel Martins & Peter Myers, cellos
Situated on a plateau at the crest of the Santa Monica Mountains, an award-winning Platinum LEED Certified structure of glass, concrete and reclaimed wood hosts a unique and versatile cello quintet, hailed as “brilliant” and “superb” by the Los Angeles Times. Amidst this lush, natural setting, enjoy a program of music inspired by the wonders of Springtime and the promise of renewal in the natural world: from the origins and maturation of life (Messiaen’s O Sacrum Convivium, Debussy’s The Girl with the Flaxen Hair, and Footsteps in the Snow) – to habitat, both urban and natural (selections from West Side Story; Dvorák’s Silent Woods) – to death and lament (Schubert’s Erlkönig; Wilson’s Lament in Memory of Matthew Shepard).
Coldwater Canyon Festival: Make it a “green afternoon”! Explore TreePeople’s nature trails and greenhouses, take self-guided eco-tours, enjoy a reception in the Watershed Garden (3-4:00 pm), and explore nearby Franklin Canyon!
Sally and Irwin Goldstein are cosponsors of the Premium Series.
This afternoon’s Coldwater Canyon Festival and concerts are made possible in part by a generous grant from The Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation.
