Tiburon arts board ponders ‘immersive’ piano concert at South of the Knoll park

Tiburon’s arts committee is considering bringing a one-day outdoor immersive piano concert to town, but it first wants more information on the estimated $14,000 cost.


The Heritage and Arts Commission at its July 25 meeting discussed whether the town should host a concert by classical pianist Hunter Noack, a member of Portland, Oregon-based big band Pink Martini. The idea was proposed by the town’s Public Art Selection Panel, which helps the commission find and vet public art to exhibit in local outdoor spaces.


As part of his “In a Landscape” series, Noack plays a one-day concert on a grand piano in natural environments such as parks, ranches and farms. Audience members don wireless headphones, similar to a silent disco experience, and can move around in the environment as they listen.


The goal is to create “an immersive and intimate experience that fosters a connection with the music, nature and each other,” according to the concert series’ website.
