Quiet tales are all well and good, but sometimes the art of oral storytelling requires a little rowdiness. Come on and feel the noise during Sonic Stories Music Into Art II at the Spencer Museum of Art (1301 Mississippi, on the University of Kansas campus in Lawrence). Billed as an “art-tour performance,” Sonic Stories features just under an hour of original percussive music set to fictional narratives, created to coincide with each of the current exhibitions at the Spencer. Co-sponsored by Reach Out Kansas Inc., the event stars composer Cory Hills’ local and regional grade-school students, who created the materials and music for the performance as part of a four-day workshop. The free, all-ages performance begins at 6 p.m. For more information, see spencerart.ku.edu or call 785-864-4710.
