Pianist Wesley Ducote
Skyspace Performance | Live Piano + Electronic Music
Celebrate the 10th anniversary of this iconic public artwork with a beautiful evening of live music! Join us at the James Turrell Twilight Epiphany Skyspace to enjoy Shepherd School alumnus Wesley Ducote's performance of contemporary piano and electronic music. Featuring works by Steve Reich, Ann Southam, Alvin Singleton, and a premiere of a commission by Max Vinetz, the program activates the Skyspace's sound system and programmable light sequencing to enhance the salient characteristics of each piece.
Noted for his "elegant and brilliant pianism" (South Florida Classical Review), Wesley Ducote is a versatile pianist with a wide range of interests and expertise. Currently a piano fellow with the New World Symphony, he was recently the featured soloist in Chris Cerrone's concerto for prepared piano and percussion "Don't Look Down." Ducote is also a resident artist with the Louis Moreau Institute of New Orleans, the Rossini Club of Nantucket, and holds degrees in mathematics and music from Rice University where he studied with Brian Connelly.
