Composer Pauline Oliveros touched countless artists during her life as a tireless advocate for making and listening to new sounds. On December 22nd, The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts welcomes all those who were inspired by Oliveros or who are curious to learn more about her beautiful life and work to remember her at the home of her archive. Friends of Oliveros, the Library's staff of scholars and curators, and the International Contemporary Ensemble will present an open sequence of letters, images, sounds, stories, and performances. There will be opportunities for questions and stories from the audience as well.
For free events, The Library generally overbooks to ensure a full house. All registered seats are released 15 minutes before start time, so we recommend that you arrive early.
