Blue Mountain: Forecast presents a concert of colorful depictions and visual references through sound. Experience moods and environments that have inspired composers and visual artists for centuries: calm, playful, angry, passionate and political.

Join us for a pre-concert tour of Louise Fishman: A Retrospective before indulging in the contemporary sounds of Blue Mountain: Forecast. Fishman's abstract expressionistic paintings from the 1970s to today will set the stage for an exciting evening of art and music. Tour begins in the McDowell Gallery at 6:15pm. Concert begins at 7pm in the Museum Atrium. Free and open to the public. 

Blue Mountain: Forecast is an adventurous, flexible ensemble based in North Carolina. As members of orchestras and university faculties across the state, BMF collectively presents new and innovative music in relaxed, alternative performance spaces while mixing aesthetic styles and trends. This program features musicians John Beck, percussion; Michael Burns, bassoon; Jacqui Carrasco, violin; Carla Copeland-Burns, flute; Jim Douglass, piano; Susan Fancher, saxophone; Clara O’Brien, mezzo-soprano; and narrator and composer Eric Schwartz.

This concert is made possible with generous support from Lincoln Financial Foundation.
