LCCC Presents: Ben Cosgrove
Tuesday, July 7 2020 @ 7:00 pm
Join us for an evening of music and conversation with Ben Cosgrove, a traveling composer-performer whose solo piano compositions explore themes of landscape, place, and environment. Ben has performed his “electric and exhilarating” music in every U.S. state except Delaware and Hawaii, and held artist residencies and fellowships with institutions including the National Park Service, the National Forest Service, Harvard University, Middlebury College, the Schmidt Ocean Institute, and the Sitka Center for Art & Ecology. His recent album “Salt,” which compares feelings of ungroundedness, loss, and confusion to landscapes of flux and ambiguity, was described by Seven Days as a “majestic entry into the composer’s catalog… replete with near-imperceptible embellishments and forward-thinking concepts.” Junction Magazine called the album “a poetry of tones and turns and motion and play that transcends the gross signification of everyday language,” and both Sound of Boston and Red Line Roots deemed it one of the best local releases of the year.
