For the sesquicentennial (150th) anniversary of the transfer of Russian Alaskan to the U.S., Wild Shore New Music presents a concert of contemporary music that addresses elements of Alaska that cut across boundaries: the light, the mountains, the water, the wildlife, and the silence of the tundra. The program includes music by Pulitzer Prize-winning Alaskan composer John Luther Adams, Californian composer Lou Harrison, John Cage, Julia Wolfe, Chris Cerrone, and more.
