On May 14, 2017, Harrison House Music, Arts & Ecology will lead a global day of creativity and conservation in Joshua Tree and around the world, celebrating the life and legacy of composer Lou Harrison. 

Published in News

Years of friendship and a deep mutual love of music and humanity has been the impetus for a magnificent house and an artist residency program in Joshua Tree.

Lou Harrison, a major American composer of the twentieth century was also a talented musician, instrument builder, humanitarian and visionary. He had a long history of collaborations with dancers such as Jean Erdman, Merce Cunningham, and Jose Limón. “Lou [Harrison], in his life and in his music, was the first one in a very beautiful way to bring world music to western music sound,” said Eva Soltes, founder of the Harrison House Music & Arts residency program. “[Harrison] mastered Korean music, Chinese music and Indonesian music.”
