The next beach performance at the Hermitage Artist Retreat will be held on Friday, Feb. 28, starting at 4:30 p.m. with an open house of the historic Hermitage House and campus tours, the retreat has announced. Afterward, Songs at Sunset will start on the beach at 5:30 p.m. with visiting composer Anna Clyne, "who will share a recording of music she wrote at the Hermitage and give an insider's view into the mind of a contemporary composer," a news release says. Following Clyne's performance will be Sarasota's own Annie Morrison, a Broadway star who will present songs and stories from her current life and work as a writer of solo plays, the release adds. Sunset about 6:30 p.m. will be followed by Art After Dark, featuring video art by Ringling College of Art and Design professor and Hermitage fellow Michael Wyshock, the release notes. He will project the art he made during his Hermitage residency. "These video streams of consciousness drawings represent the world he sees in a creative, meditative state," the release adds. This program will be free, but visitors are requested to bring their own beach chairs and refreshments, the release points out. The Hermitage Artist Retreat has become known in the community for its artistic programs on the beach.
