Music from Salem opens its 30th anniversary season with “The Petrified Forest” Spring recital at Hubbard Hall.

Ten different composers were commissioned to write music based on aspects of the park, and Rider performed these pieces at different locations in and around the park. For her MfS concert, photos of the park will add another layer of artistry designed to immerse the audience in a unique presentation of interwoven music and imagery.
