IN A LANDSCAPE: Classical Music in the Wild


Beyond the Bay South Bay North Bay San Francisco Peninsula


Founded in 2016 by classical pianist Hunter Noack, IN A LANDSCAPE: Classical Music in the Wild is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit outdoor concert series where  America’s most stunning landscapes replace the traditional concert hall.  A 9-foot Steinway grand piano travels on a flatbed trailer to State and National Parks, urban greenspaces, working ranches, farms, and  historical sites for classical music concerts that connect people with each landscape.  

To meet the acoustical challenges of performing in the wild,  music is transmitted to concert-goers via wireless headphones. No longer confined to seats, audiences explore the landscape, wander through secret glens, lie in sunny meadows, and roam old growth forests.

In the spirit of the Works Progress Administration’s (WPA) Federal Music and Theatre Projects, which presented thousands of free concerts and plays in theaters, public spaces and parks across the country during the Depression, IN A LANDSCAPE events are offered primarily in rural communities for free or on a subsidized basis.

Since 2016, IN A LANDSCAPE has presented 250 concerts in Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, New York, Utah, Wyoming, and California to over 50,000 people. Guest artists have included poets, visual artists, dancers, and musicians playing everything from banjos to pianos. 

Folks travel from near and far. Local ranchers, loggers, and farmers gather with visiting city dwellers and tourists from beyond.
