Gelato, new music, and goats, oh my!

Want to listen to some of my earth-themed chamber music performed by CUSO musicians, meet some cute goats, and eat delicious gelato? Then come spend two hours with us at Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery! This Sunday (Sept. 23), 2-4 PM, we will present a free event featuring my Phoenix Rising for solo flute, performed by Amanda Pond, and movements of my String Quartet No. 3: Gaia, performed by violinists Maria Arrua and Aaron Jacobs, violist Robin Kearton, and cellist Barbara Hedlund.

There will also be farm and goat tours, led by PFFC owners Leslie Cooperband and Wes Jarrell. We will have four tasty gelato flavors and one sorbetto from which to choose. We will also be running our “Messages to Gaia” project, in which all children and adults can draw artwork & write poetry to our planet.
