"Live Steam Voices "

Among her many pursuits, Arden is also a talented musician. H er instruments of choice aren't the easiest to learn. She plays a mean bagpipe, and an earfor the beauty in the sound of an old steam whistle led to a unique concert tour in the late 1980s. "Live Steam Voices Salute The Empire State" paid homage to the Erie Canal. The tour was a collaboration between Arden Scott and composer William Varick Basset and gave concerts along the 505-mile barge canal from New York City to Buffalo, using a collection of 24 steam whistles as their musical instruments. The 3-week concert tour and steam whistle exhibition used a barge for its stage.
