Present Music opened the new concert season on Saturday afternoon with 99 musicians tucked in among the sculptures of the 40-acre Lynden Sculpture Garden for a performance of John Luther Adams' "Inuksuit."
The bevy of percussionists and wind players used everything from temple gongs, drums, cymbals, conch shells and rocks to water sticks, whirly tubes, piccolos and several hand-cranked sirens over the 80-minute (or so) piece, written in 2009.
... The 99 performers, many of whom were listed as being affiliated with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee*, the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra and quite a few other colleges and universities, were scattered in and around the sculptures, woods and other physical features of the garden.
