Water Music
A site-specific, environmental work, Water Music at Make Music Boston is inspired by the Charles River and the many roles water plays in our daily lives. Directed by Maria Finkelmeier, 50 musicians (brass players, percussionists, and singers) will perform newly commissioned work by Marti Epstein, C. Neil Parsons, Maria Finkelmeier, Anthony Green, and Manuel Garcia. The performers will be placed along the Esplanade walkway, and the new works will be performed at sunset on the Summer Solstice. Listeners will each create their own experience by walking within and around the performers themselves.
