Da Vinci’s notebooks—full of notes, drawings, innovation, and genius—spring to life! Over 500 pages of Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks survive today. During this multimedia concert event, Da Vinci’s intricate handwriting and sketches are animated as motion graphics that sync to a stirring musical work performed by a chorus and chamber ensemble. Composed to mark the 500th anniversary of da Vinci’s death, this celebration of innovation features members from five Elgin performance ensembles and is conducted by ECC professor emeritus John G. Slawson.
The Blizzard Theatre is located in Building H, Elgin Community College, in Elgin, Illinois 60123.
