Fulmer curates an entire musical celebration - a day-long festival - as a companion to the Helen Frankenthaler exhibition at the Clark Art Institute. Fulmer will lead the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), Ensemble Connect (Carnegie Hall), and other acclaimed musicians throughout the day, exploring different performance spaces throughout the galleries and grounds of the Museum. Fulmer will lead his seventy-first performance of Scheonberg's epic Pierrot Lunaire with ICE and soprano Lucy Shelton. Other composers on the programs will include Pauline Oliveros, Morton Feldman, Elliott Carter, Ruth Crawford-Seeger, Edgard Varése, John Cage, Mario Davidovsky, and Charles Wuorinen. Pianist Conor Hanick will premiere two new works by Fulmer, including tracing scarlet in the shimmering, and sheathed in the crush of the sea (2017).
