Join us for the PEM Prize Street Music Festival — a community-wide celebration hosted in collaboration with Creative Collective.
Celebrate artist and PEM Prize recipient Carlos Garaicoa, whose groundbreaking exhibition Partitura featured a new kind of orchestra made up of 40 individual recordings of street musicians. Join us as local street musicians bring a unique sound to downtown Salem and the PEM campus throughout the day. In addition to street music performances, the event will feature vendors, a DJ, food trucks and beer garden as well as live art experiences and art making for all ages to enjoy.
Then experience the world premiere performance of a new score Garaicoa created especially for the PEM Prize in collaboration with composer Esteban Puebla. The artist will be in attendance.
