Complementary Colors
7:30pm
Glen Lake Community Reformed ChurchComplementary Colors w/Matthew Cochran, guitar
Glen Arbor, MI

Manitou Winds opens its 2020 season with an exciting spring concert exploring color. We’ll delve into the artist’s palette to uncover the many moments where sight, sound, and memory intersect and color becomes the primary language of expression.

We’ll uncover how artists in many disciplines use divergent voices to create new colors. Our performance will feature collaborating artist, Matthew Cochran, Instructor of Guitar at Interlochen Arts Academy. We’ll present his intriguing work for wind quintet and guitar, Cicadas at the Equinox, along with other exciting works.

The program will also include a solo exhibit created by our collaborating artist Lauren Everett Finn. Daring combinations of instruments along with poetry, prose, and visual art will form a collage of color, sound, and mood, inviting us to consider how opposing shades highlight one another, sharpening our perception.

We’re proud to partner with the Glen Arbor Arts Center to bring you this performance. Admission is free. No tickets or reservations required. Proceeds from a freewill offering will support Manitou Winds’ ongoing mission to collaborate with local artists to create new and engaging programming, bringing the intimate joy of chamber music to audiences across Northern Michigan.
