Oraison

This unique concert offers an opportunity for a rare encounter with the ondes Martenot - an extraordinary versatile electronic musical instrument with a sound unlike anything else.

The concert will feature a variety of classical and contemporary pieces played on piano and ondes Martenot. The pieces will be centered around Olivier Messiaen's Oraison; a transfixing instrumental meditation on time, transience, and entrance into the eternal.

With the astounding acoustics of the Harris Museum's atrium, this is sure to be an evening suited to all music lovers. Don't miss the chance to immerse yourself in the waves of the ondes Martenot.
