Anthracite Fields

Anthracite Fields

Musicians from Bang on a Can All-Stars perform “Anthracite Fields” while in front of an enlarged image of a coal worker.

“Anthracite Fields” “captures not only the sadness of hard lives lost, but also of the sweetness and passion of a way of daily life now also lost. "The music compels without overstatement," said a Los Angeles Times critic. The Center for the Performing Arts will welcome composer Julia Wolfe’s 2015 Pulitzer Prize-winning oratorio, with Penn State Concert Choir and conductor Christopher Kiver, to Eisenhower Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 30, 2017.
