Music of the Sun

with ETHEL and Robert Mirabal

7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10

Music of the Sun

For thousands of years, humankind has turned toward the sun for inspiration, be it spiritual, philosophical or poetic. Ancient sun myths from around the world continue to fascinate scholars and laypeople alike. In many Native American cultures, each day begins with "running to the sun" — a fusion of spiritual and physical discipline — a daily search for the sacred.

ETHEL — the pioneering string quartet — and Grammy-winning Native American flutist ROBERT MIRABAL present a program inspired by the sun mythology of Native America. Using the instruments of the string quartet, Native American flutes (Tdoop-Pootse) and drums (Mooloo), as well as the spirited voices of students and community members, ETHEL and MIRABAL unite to create an inspirational crosscultural contemporary music event.
