DESCRIPTION

The Lights Fest is an experience where thousands of friends and families gather to listen to live music, fill up on food trucks and light up life by sharing personal wishes, dreams and goals. At the perfect moment everyone ignites their personalized sky lanterns with Tiki torches and lets them take flight. It creates a surreal ambiance, where time slows down and your single flame rises and joins with thousands of others to light up your life.

The lights fest is dedicated to leaving a positive impact on the environment and everyone who attends our event. This is an event that is for everyone but cultivates individual experiences. Whether you’re commemorating or celebrating you’re creating a special memory that will last a lifetime

The Lights Fest is proud to be supporting Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin, an organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions, to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. The Lights Fest will be making a donation to the organization in honor of this event. For more information visit wisconsin.wish.org

10/29 | Breaking Ground @ Mills Concert Hall ft Sound Out Loud Ensemble

Sat, 10/29  |  7pm  Free @ Mills Concert Hall

455 N Park St, Madison, Wisconsin 53706

BREAKING GROUND

UW Madison faculty bassoonist Marc Vallon has planned a special concert of groundbreaking works of music from the 17th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Professor Vallon writes: “Composers of all periods have continually explored new musical territories, looked for new paths, and tried, through groundbreaking works, to launch new courses of musical expression. This program offers the public pieces that have, in their time, provided a starting point to new musical routes, just as the first stroke of a shovel is the birth of a new building and a new era.” The concert will include music by J.S. Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Alexander Scriabin, Iannis Xenakis, John Cage, Helmut Lachenmann, and Morton Feldman.

Featuring:
members of the Sound Out Loud Ensemble
Jessica Johnson

I’m very excited to perform Helmut Lachenmann’s “Pression” (1969) for solo cello on Saturday!  The graph score is extremely precise, just as much a piece of visual art as it is an exploration of quiet extended technique.
