Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony invite Other Minds fans to a rare performance of Henry Brant's spectacular Ice Field, for multiple orchestras and organ, commissioned in 2001 by Other Minds, and awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 2002. This is only the second performance of the piece since its premiere in 2001. Composed specifically for the architectural configuration of Davies Hall. No recording could do it justice—you just have to be there.

Other Minds followers will receive a 25% discount on tickets for the performance on Sunday, September 21, 2014, at 2:00 p.m., Davies Symphony Hall, in Civic Center by clicking the link below:
