Vigorous Tenderness: a fall equinox concert

Tuesday, September 22nd, 5pm-6:30pm
Fort Williams Park, Ship Cove Platform
free, no tickets required

Gather at Fort Williams for an outdoor concert installation to reengage with acoustic sound in observance of the fall equinox.


This experimental performance resembles an art museum experience, with musicians stationed throughout the fort while the audience follows a path of listening and reflection. The program highlights nonwhite and lgbtq composers, and features some of Maine's most thoughtful musicians.


Please arrive between 5 and 5:45, and move through the installation at your own pace.


Park near the beach, beginning at Ship Cove Platform.


The rain date for this event is Wednesday, September 23rd.


This is a musical offering to the community, free of charge.


Masks are required at all times, please distance responsibly.
