The Clark presents Concerts at the Conforti, opening with the American Modern Opera Company (AMOC) in a program on journeying, with music composed and arranged by AMOC musicians.

Doug Balliett, Emi Ferguson, Jordan Dodson, and Keir GoGwilt create a unique blend of folk, baroque, and classical influences to tell musical stories about journeys across the Camino de Santiago, the Irish Sea, and the continental States. Combining spoken narration, song, and virtuosic instrumental playing, this program tells compelling stories about the dreams, desires, and difficulties that draw us away from home.

Concerts at the Conforti offers an afternoon performance of new classical music followed by an evening show of electronic music. Both expertly calibrated for the winter, the concerts overrun the boundaries of categorization and celebrate the act of listening.

A ticket for either event admits you to both performances, so you can stay for the electronic landscapes of Greg Davis and the quiet synths of Sea and Cake frontman Sam Prekop at 7 p.m.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
