Weather permitting, concerts will also take place at the open-air Domo, a 98-foot-long, 16-foot-tall, acoustically rich sculptural structure designed by Ensemble Studio…. Season highlights include a world premiere by composer Aaron Jay Kernis … performed by pianist Pedja Muzijevic and cellist Matt Haimovitz…. [Pianist] Anne-Marie McDermott returns to Tippet Rise, performing both as a soloist and with … the St. Lawrence String Quartet….
