Zoom Lecture – June 10, 2021 – 1:00 pm

Lou Harrison Composer

His Life, Legacy and Desert Dream



Lou Harrison’s world will be colorfully illuminated through video excerpts from Eva Soltes’ film about the composer, annotated by her thirty-year friendship with him and woven into 14 years of programming she has brought to Harrison House continuing a legacy of music, arts and ecology. 

Eva is the Founder/ Director of Harrison House Music, Arts & Ecology, a residency/performance program, based in the late Lou Harrison’s straw bale retreat in Joshua Tree, California. Soltes enjoyed a multi-faceted personal and professional relationship with Lou Harrison that spanned nearly 30 years. During that time she developed a large body of media on the composer, culminating in her feature length documentary, LOU HARRISON: A World of Music.
