On Valentine’s weekend, the award-winning Antigone Music Collective brings its talents to the Artspace 304 Gallery, alongside Passing into Shadow, the mesmerizing solar eclipse exhibit. The Antigone Music Collective is a nonprofit organization based in Cincinnati, whose mission is to bring accessible modern music to audiences.
At 11:00 am, as part of the popular Klassics for Kids series, Antigone will perform music that engages young audiences. Then, at 7:00 pm, they return with a program titled: Celestial Contrasts. Appearing in different combinations, the four musicians perform works by Alban Berg, Isang Yun, Pauline Oliveros, and Bela Bartok.
Marsha Ryan, Artspace 304’s Board President, notes that, “Antigone has been featured in previous Southern Illinois Music Festivals. They are always an audience favorite because of their talent and passion for their music. We are delighted to provide this experience for the community.”
Chuck Benya, CEO and Executive Director of Artspace 304, states that, “This event is an example of our Total Eclipse of the Arts programming which is a companion to the on-going solar eclipse exhibit, Passing into Shadow. We are grateful to Arts Midwest and Illinois Arts Council for helping fund the concert. We are also fortunate to have Banterra Bank as our partner in solar eclipse programming.”
Both concerts will take place in the Artspace 304 Gallery, 304 W Walnut Street in Carbondale. The event is free and open to the public. Donations are welcomed. Guests should park in the First Christian Church parking lot, located on W Monroe Street and S University Avenue.
Artspace 304 supports Southern Illinois’ diverse and vibrant cultural arts community by growing leadership, education, funding, connections, and regional economic development.
