IN A LANDSCAPE: Classical Music in the Wild™

Founded in 2016 by classical pianist Hunter Noack, IN A LANDSCAPE: Classical Music in the Wild™ is an outdoor concert series where North America’s most stunning landscapes replace the traditional concert hall.

A 1912 Steinway model D concert grand piano travels on a flatbed trailer to awe-inspiring natural landscapes across the West, from national parks to urban oases. Guests are encouraged to wander and explore the surrounding environment while listening to the music through wireless headphones, creating an immersive and intimate experience that fosters a connection with the music, nature, and with one another.

Now in its 9th season, the project has presented 250 concerts featuring 90 guest artists for nearly 50,000 people, many of whom experienced live classical music for the first time. Inspired by Hunter’s passions, the organization’s mission is to remove barriers to access classical music and the great outdoors, and has inspired several artists and organizations to bring their own music experiences into nature. In the spirit of the Works Progress Administration’s (WPA) Federal Music and Theatre Projects, which presented thousands of free concerts and plays in theaters, public spaces and parks across the country during the Depression, IN A LANDSCAPE events are also offered in rural communities for free or on a subsidized basis.

Public on sale: March 15 at 1 pm
