This year our annual Founder’s Day concert honoring Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge offers something remarkable: a collaboration between the fearless Third Coast Percussion, electronic music producer/composer Jlin and Movement Art Is in a composed evening featuring dance and music by Glass, Jlin and Tyondai Braxton. The video excerpt features the world premiere of Gemma Peacocke's The threshold we cross with closed eyes. Inspired by people's stories of arrivals at a point in history, Peacocke researched the Library's digital archive and listened to recordings of individuals’ testimonies, some featured in her work. The piece also incorporates sounds and textures drawn from Peacocke's quarantine nature walks in her native New Zealand.
