Ólafur Arnalds’ and his band put on a spellbinding performance that blends the past, present and future of music. Haunting, and often intensely emotional, Ólafur’s shows are an exercise in intimacy between the artist and the audience – and a space to share their vulnerability.

Following the release of his monumental new album some kind of peace, Ólafur Arnalds’ latest tour features his signature string quartet, a live percussionist and Ólafur’s arsenal of pianos and synthesizers. His ground-breaking, self-playing Stratus pianos will be along for the ride — creating unexpected harmonies and surprising melodies that make every performance unique.

Join Arts Commons Presents for this special presentation in the magnificent Jack Singer Concert Hall.

*Please be on time. For the respect of the artists and other patrons, latecomers will only be seated at an appropriate break in the performance.

Named after Mr. Jack Singer ($1.5M contribution from his sons, Alan and Stephen Singer), the concert hall is also the home of the Carthy Organ donated by the Carthy Foundation in the amount of $750,000 in memory of Mrs. Margaret Mannix. Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.

Over its 32 year life, Jack Singer Concert Hall has undergone many upgrades to ensure that it remains a state-of-the-art performance hall, including a new million dollar sound system with state-of-the-art hearing assistance in 2004, a complete replacement of all its analog sound boards in 2014, and the full replacement of all of its seats, in 2017.
