Tickets to this event include Museum admission.


In this orchestral set—titled “Ives’s Three Places in New England and the Artwork of Marsden Hartley”—Connecticut-born composer Charles Ives sets out to evoke through music the atmosphere and history of three locations in New England. Marsden Hartley, his contemporary, was himself deeply attached to music. The artist returned to Maine in his final years and applied his modernist aesthetic to its landscapes.

Tickets start at $30. Details available here.
