(Coos Bay, Oregon) – Something unusual and unusually fun is coming to the south Oregon coast, where you can take in live music but roam the scenery with headphones on. (Shore Acres State Park gardens - photo courtesy Friends of Shore Acres)

Classical pianist Hunter Noack will be showing up in Coos Bay's Shore Acres State Park on August 23, 24 and 25 with his IN A LANDSCAPE: Classical Music in the Wild series, then darting down to the Brookings area to Crissey Field State Recreation Site on August 27 for one final Oregon coast show.

Two others in the series set for Gearhart earlier in the summer are sold out.

The shows are all outdoors, in the wilds of the Oregon coast, amid the foliage, forest and not far from the rustling breakers of the ocean. The ticket price includes use of their headphones, where a perfectly balanced mix of the performer or performers is sent via wireless signal to your set. You are no longer confined to seating in front and can wander freely.

At Shore Acres, you'll be able to roam around the abundant flowers and check out the surf below while listening. From here, you can see the tilted, jagged shapes of the area's cliffs and some of the most dramatic waves in the region. At Crissey Field, you'll be able to move about the grounds and take in that forest and the nearby raging tideline. This is the southernmost point in Oregon, straddling the California border in one spot.

Noack founded this non-profit in 2016 and has been touring the U.S. and its outdoor areas since, using a 9-foot Steinway grand piano that is lugged around on a flatbed trailer. National and state parks, urban greenspaces, farms and historical sites have all encountered his engaging take on the outdoor show, featuring largely classical music.

Noack said the headphones idea comes from the acoustic challenges of outdoor shows, but has wound up creating an enhanced experience.
