William Close and The Earth Harp Collective

Inspired by the Frank Lloyd Wright quote “architecture is frozen music,” William Close creates musical installations that use the architecture as part of the instrument – most notably the Earth Harp, the world’s largest string instrument, which Close invented in 1999. The body of the Earth Harp rests on the stage and the strings attach to the balcony of the PAC, turning the theater into an instrument and allowing audience members to look up as the music and architecture collide above them.

Anaïs Mitchell is first and foremost a storyteller. As a Vermont- and Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter, Mitchell recorded for Ani Difranco’s Righteous Babe Records for several years before starting her own Wilderland label in 2012. She’s touring with friend and collaborator Jefferson Hamer in support of Child Ballads, a co-arranged collection of traditional Celtic and British Isles ballads. Sponsored by the Mercyhurst Institute for Arts and Culture, her performance takes place at the Erie Art Museum.
