Event Detail Information
Fifth House Ensemble - Invoking the Muse
Following the successful Listen to the River project in spring 2012, Sangamon Auditorium is once again working with 5th House Ensemble to create a new performance event. Known for their innovative chamber music programs, 5th House Ensemble will join us to consider the question, Ã¢ÂÂWhat inspires you?Ã¢ÂÂ In ancient Greek mythology, a group of goddesses called the Muses presided over different areas of the arts and sciences and were called upon when inspiration was needed. Today, artists and scientists credit many different sources that inspire them to pursue new ideas. Between musical selections performed by 5th House Ensemble, UIS professors with connections to the areas of study associated with the ancient Muses will share what inspires them. Join us for this modern interpretation of the concept of creative inspiration.
