GOETHEANUM: Light, Space, Sound, Color

This concert will be an synthesis of diverse artistic music, media and sensory effects featuring music by Schumann, Mendelssohn, Reichardt. (A collaboration with Sacramento City College’s Art Department)

Music is liquid architecture; Architecture is frozen music.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832)


As always, Vox Musica jumps into the musical with their highly anticipated adventurous concert project in February that will permeate the 5 senses. GOETHEANUM: Light, Space, Sound, Color, is a unique collaborative project between the Sacramento City College Art Department and Vox Musica. Based upon the theories of Goethe and the architectural concepts of Rudolf Steiner, Beatnik Studios will be transformed into a temporary modern “Goetheanum.” The Sac City Art Department will use art, light, and color, to perfectly align the space for Vox Musica’s presentation of Classical, Romantic, and modern choral works. Together each element will flow organically into a single heightened “Gesamtkunstwerk.” This concert will be a synthesis of diverse music, art, and sensory effects featuring music by Schumann, Mendelssohn, and Reichardt. This amazing once-in-a-lifetime event will have two performances February 23rd and 24th both at Beatnik Studios (723 S. Street; Sacramento Ca.)

The Goetheanum, located in Dornach (near Basel), Switzerland, is the world center for the anthroposophical movement. The building was designed by Rudolf Steiner and named after Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.[1] It includes two performance halls (1500 seats), gallery and lecture spaces, a library, a bookstore, and administrative spaces for the Anthroposophical Society; neighboring buildings house the Society’s research and educational facilities. Conferences focusing on themes of general interest or directed toward teachers, farmers, doctors, therapists, and other professionals are held at the center throughout the year. Both the present Goetheanum building and its precursor have been widely cited as masterpieces of modern architecture.
