Ecstatic Summer @ Brookfield Place Plaza - 6/30/2013
Indie/classical concert Ecstatic Summer 2013 went down last month over the course of two evenings (6/29-30) as part of the free River to River Festival. The concert featured premiere compositions from Holly, Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Reggie Pace (Bon Iver), Dave Douglas, Susie Ibarra, Seth Olinsky (Akron/Family), People Get Ready, and Son Lux performed by members of The National, yMusic, Plastic Ono Band, and more. The show featured some unconventional percussion, including synchronized ping pong players. Originally scheduled to happen outdoors at the Brookfield Place Plaza, the events were moved inside due to the weather forecast (which ended up being sunny). Pictures of the second day are in this post.
