Invented by installation artist and musician William Close, the earth harp’s body will rest on the McCain stage while its golden strings will soar above the heads of the audience and attach to the balcony rails, turning the theatre into an instrument.
Tickets for “Earth Harp Meets Oud” are $9-$45, plus applicable taxes and fees, and are available now at the McCain Auditorium box office, online at k-state.edu/mccain, or by calling 785-532-6428.
This concert is part of Kansas State University’s Creativity Illuminated, April 3-6, a celebration of cultural awareness with special musical performances, discussions, film screenings and more presented by artists-in-residence.
