wild Up: Chamber music
Throughout the residency, wild Up musicians will have the opportunity to explore their individual interests through a chamber music series. This week clarinetist Brian Walsh brings his jazz trio to perform a set on the terrace.
wild Up is a 24-member experimental classical/contemporary ensemble comprised of Los Angeles musicians committed to creating visceral, thought-provoking happenings. By mixing traditional classical works, challenging new compositions and indie music, their insightful programming looks to change the experience of the classical concert and reconceptualize the role of an orchestra in its community. Throughout a performance wild Up creates an active experience for the audience by sharing the contextual and inspirational impetus for their program. The ensemble practices a philosophy of radical-inclusionism: audience members are invited to experience concerts the way that they see fit, and absolutely no music is off limits.
When visiting the museum from July through December visitors will encounter vibrant performances, projects, and interactive installations. Stop by to find out what’s possible when an orchestra takes on a museum.
