A JOHN CAGE RETROSPECTIVE WITH SALON97
Hosted by Cariwyl Hebert
“I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas.
I'm frightened of the old ones.”
You probably heard of John Cage well before people the world over celebrated the 100th anniversary of his birth in September. Since then, Cage has re-entered the popular vernacular and inspires a fresh batch of art, cartoons, music, and more.
Join Booksmith and Salon97 for a night of all things John Cage -- music, art, poems, and some of the art he inspired. Come listen to (and see) some of his creations and perform one, too! We’ll also share samples of work inspired by John Cage’s groundbreaking ideas.
Salon97 is a community-based organization that makes classical music inclusive, educational — and awesome — for people with an interest in arts and culture, but who find the formal nature of the concert hall intimidating. Through a series of curated, themed listening parties and other hosted events, attendees learn about and discuss classical music, form new friendships and business relationships, and have a great time!
