Other Minds festival launches website dedicated to Lou Harrison

Harrison’s work is Other Minds’ “guiding spirit”, declares the San Francisco based festival

San Francisco festival Other Minds has launched a website to keep track of a host of events set to mark 2017 as the centenary year of US composer Lou Harrison. Taking place next spring, Other Minds 22 will be dedicated to the maverick composer, whose “pioneering work both in his personal life and artistic output [has acted] as a guiding spirit” to the festival.

The Lou Harrison Centennial Website focuses on events hosted by Other Minds as well as information about Harrison concerts in Portand, Santa Cruz, San Francisco and Berkeley. Suggestions can be emailed to
