Enjoy classical music in the Art Garden with a performance by The Alma Ensemble. Bring a lawn chair of blanket for seating.
The Alma Ensemble was founded by flutist Sarah Wardle Jones, clarinetist Michelle Smith Johnson and pianist Erica Sipes. It was birthed from a desire to create music that is empowering and resonant. The group places a high priority on playing music by other women composers, and is named in recognition of Alma Mahler, a composer who never received the opportunities afforded to the male composers with whom she was romantically linked. Alma also means “nourishment” or “soul” which is something the ensemble endeavors to bring to every performance.
Piedmont Arts will also host a ribbon cutting for its new Pollinator Path prior to the performance.
