10th annual {Re}HAPPENING at Lake Eden

Saturday, April 2nd 2022

The {Re}HAPPENING is an annual afternoon and evening event at the historic campus of Black Mountain College – 15 minutes from Asheville. It is part art event, part fundraiser, and part community instigator, providing a platform for contemporary artists to share their responses to the vital legacy of Black Mountain College.

Featured Performance: The Philip Glass Ensemble Unplugged – Michael Riesman (keyboard, music director), Mick Rossi (keyboard), Lisa Bielawa (voice), Peter Hess (woodwinds),  Ryan Kelly (sound). The Philip Glass Ensemble Unplugged will perform a repertoire for amplified pianos, vocals, and woodwinds. Selections include Parts 5 and 6 from Music in Twelve Parts, “Opening” from Glassworks, “Dance 1” and “Spaceship” from Einstein on the Beach. In 1968, Glass founded the PGE in New York City as a laboratory for his music. Its purpose was to develop a performance practice to meet the unprecedented technical and artistic demands of his compositions. In pioneering this approach, the PGE became a creative wellspring for Glass, and its members remain inimitable interpreters of his work. The Philip Glass Ensemble is the exclusive performer of its repertoire. Please note that Philip Glass will not perform as part of this concert.
