Don't Break The Ice!

TAOS SKI VALLEY (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Long-time Taos resident and world renowned ice sculptor Tim Linhart, together with his wife and fellow sculptor Birgitta, returns to Taos Ski Valley for the 2010-2011 ski season bringing Ice Music.

Tim Linhart began creating ice sculptures in Taos Ski Valley in 1984 and his work has continually pushed the limits of the ice medium ever since. Over the past twelve years Tim has traveled the world developing Ice Music and has put on ten Ice Music Festivals.

The ice instruments range from violins and cellos to drums and xylophone and are all hand-sculpted from ice.

Concerts will be played in the Celestial Sphere Concert Hall, a series of vaulted igloo style white-ice domes interlocking to form one of the world’s most unique musical venues, “A Nightclub in Heaven.”

Construction of the Celestial Sphere will occur under the direction of ice sculptor Birgitta Linhart and will be open through the end of March presenting a wide range of musical concerts featuring some of New Mexico’s finest musicians.

There will be daily walkthrough tours, biweekly educational lecture and slide shows, and the venue will also be available to rent for private parties, meetings and weddings.

“Taos is where the idea of Ice Music comes from,” Tim said according to Taos Ski Valley. “As a community Taos has a unique makeup that I know will fully embrace the idea of Ice Music and bring it to fruition. It‘s more than an ‘oh, that‘s a cool‘ project. It‘s about bringing people together to celebrate the untouched possibility and spirituality inherent in water and ice.”
