Worlds collide as chamber music, the cosmos, and technology create a special performance featuring pianist Olga Kleiankina. Projections of the cosmos, designed by North Carolina State University professor Emil Polyak, are controlled and manipulated through Kleiankina’s playing. The result is an immersive sensory experience, “Our Passage to the Stars,” designed to delight and exhilarate the audience. Includes works by Ligeti, Salonen, and Crumb and new commissions by Peter Askim and Rodney Waschka.

Docent-led tours of featured works of art are offered at 12:45 pm. Please make reservations for the tour by calling the NCMA Box Office at least one week in advance.
