ENGI Performance 3/22/15

When Nathan began the performance by creating tones on a meditation bowl, it was like the whole museum atrium fell into a trance.  It was a busy day, with a new exhibtion, Joan Miró: Instinct & Imagination, having just opened.  People stopped, looked up, and peered their heads from the ticket line.  Slowly, performers emerged from all corners and began playing the handbells and then started singing.  You could feel the pace of the busy lobby slow down as onlookers gathered on the balconies and steps to see and hear what was unfolding.  And then, as quickly as it formed, the performance dissipated and the performers blended back into the crowd.  Magical video to come!
