“Meeting at the Parting Place”: Thollem McDonas’ solo piano concert to benefit the Mesa Prieta Petroglyph Project

Española — Celebrating the acoustics of the Misión Museum located on the Plaza de Española, Thollem McDonas presents his solo piano works, Meeting At The Parting Place, as a benefit for the Mesa Prieta Petroglyph Project.

Thollem McDonas was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, rigorously studying the standard classical piano repertoire, composing and improvising since he was a young child and absorbing the myriad of sounds of his culturally diverse upbringing. He’s also a published author about art, politics and his travels in The Anthology of Essays On Deep Listening, Full Moon Magazine (Prague) and First American Art Magazine (New Mexico). He is presently in residency in Northern New Mexico, working on a documentary about art and community from his experiences along his extensive travels and collaborations.

The Mesa Prieta Petroglyph Project promotes heritage stewardship and the protection of archaeological features and the environmental and cultural landscape of the Mesa Prieta region of the northern Rio Grande Valley.

The Misión Museum contains works produced by the finest regional artists that portray both the history from ancient times as well as the modern establishment of the Española Valley.

Come at 7:15pm to meet the composer as well as to enjoy the space and art. Concert is from 7:30-9pm.
