In an exciting first-time collaboration, Storm King Art Center is partnering with Orange County, New York’s Ferry Godmother Productions to present a fun-filled day of art and music for all generations.
Visitors will experience Storm King’s grounds and sculpture through music, with six bands playing six different genres of music at six different locations throughout Storm King Art Center’s 500-acre site. Musicians will perform country, swing, jazz, world, oldies, and rock.
Guided by music, visitors may choose to linger at a favorite genre for the afternoon, or move on to explore new sights and sounds. The six bands will perform simultaneously throughout the day, allowing attendees to experience multiple genres.
In addition to the musical performances, educational workshops with a live, teaching band will take place throughout the day at the festival’s main ‘marquee’ tent. Participants in these workshops will explore rhythm, sound, and creativity across different musical genres and create their own tunes. Renowned bassist Christopher Dean Sullivan, whose character development program, E.V.O.L.V.E., teaches life skills through understanding the psychology of sound and vibration, will present the workshops.
