An extra exciting element this year will be transforming Harbor Park into a sound garden with the help of Minneapolis-based award-winning composer/director James Everest. The Harbor Park Sound Garden is a family-friendly, free, outdoor event open to all ages and will take place from 12 – 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 27. The Sound Garden event will celebrate the coming of spring, and the history, geography, and ecology of Harbor Park and Lake Superior. According to Everest, the Sound Garden will feature a temporary sound installation, combining live musicians and a small choir with 35 small, battery-powered remote speakers distributed throughout the park, each playing a different part of the larger piece of music – a spatial concert you can walk through! In addition to the sound installation, the event will feature visual art elements by local artists, live poetry, history, and storytelling and interactive opportunities.
