SPAC on Stage Series: Anoushka Shankar - Land of Gold
“SPAC on Stage” features a unique seating arrangement that transforms the SPAC amphitheater into an intimate concert experience, where the entire audience is placed onstage with the artists, looking out into the theater. The series takes place once per month – June 19, July 23, August 26 and September 9 – and showcases ensembles whose artistry crosses through classical, contemporary and global music genres. All performances begin at 8 p.m.
Anoushka Shankar – Land of Gold – June 19
The heir to the transcendent musical tradition of her father, Ravi Shankar, Anoushka will bring her hypnotic melding of Indian classical and progressive world music. Known for her spiritual musicality, the sitar player and composer has garnered several prestigious accolades, including six Grammy® Award nominations. Her most recent nomination came for her album Land of Gold, which was written in response to the humanitarian trauma of displaced people fleeing conflict and poverty.
Tickets to “SPAC on Stage” will be $50 or $40, depending on location.
