April 15, 16, and 17, 2016 PIFA presents: Concerto in Sea Major: Aquacoustique

Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts
Concerto in Sea Major: Aquacoustique

Concerto in Sea Major is the first concert to be performed in the water, as performed by French group Aquacoustique. The group's three musicians, Jean-Philippe Carde, Florent Lalet, and Stephane Gratteau, use found and recycled objects to create aqua-instruments for this unique performance taking place in select water fountains throughout Philadelphia. Performing belly-deep in water, Aquacoustique transforms snorkels into flutes and watering cans into saxophones, among other ingenious creations — including using water itself as a musical and rhythmic instrument — helping audiences to discover another side of the precious element.

This will be the American Premiere of Concerto in Sea Major.
