Last updated 2/6/2018 at 1:30pm
Join Anza-Borrego Foundation for a one-of-a-kind concert and visual experience with violinist/violist and composer Beth Chafey-Hon Feb. 16 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Inspired by her time spent in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Beth Chafey-Hon has composed a series of eleven pieces showcasing different striking features of the desert. Titles include "Roadrunner on Patrol," "Shifting, Drifting Sands" and "Fierce Mountain Singing."
Visual meets acoustic creative expression:
For the acoustically inclined, Chafey-Hon has put together a varying collection of composition techniques- from diatonic consonance to non-tonal, pitch class, and percussive textures of musical descriptions of each aspect our beloved desert wilderness.
For those more visually inclined, she will be accompanied by a collection of photographs from her personal collection and from the Anza-Borrego Desert Photo Contest. Each song has a visual backdrop to put a sight to the sounds weaving their way through your mind.
Beth Chafey-Hon has created and curated this concert out of her love of this spectacular place, and has generously offered to contribute all proceeds to Anza-Borrego Foundation and our work to continue conserving it through education, park support, and land acquisition.
Tickets are $25 and are available online. Wine will be sold at the event. For more information, contact Donor Relations Manager Bri Fordem at bfordem@theABF.org or 760-767-0446 ext 1006.
