The Lakota Music Project comes to Eagle Butte


Submitted by the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra

Once again the SDSO and the Creekside Singers come together to present a side-by-side performance featuring a musical exchange between the Creekside Singers and the musicians of the SDSO. The musicians will play for each other focusing on music that expresses four common human experiences: love, war, mourning and celebration. The second half of the program features two compositions created expressly for the Lakota Music Project, Black Hills Olowan by Native American composer Brent Michael Davids (Mohican) and Desert Wind composed by SDSO principal oboist, Jeff Paul.

The program will be presented on Friday, April 19, 2013, at 7 p.m. in the Cheyenne Eagle Butte High School, Eagle Butte, SD.

The Lakota Music Project has been made possible by the generous financial support of the South Dakota Arts Council, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the John T. for the Arts.
