Two Los Angeles experimental music collectives have partnered to put on a biannual new opera workshop called First Take. wild Up and The Industry will present 6 brand new works by some of the most exciting Los Angeles composers.
I will be performing the piece "B&C" by critically acclaimed composer Andrew McIntosh (http://www.andrewnathanielmcintosh.com/).
The performance will begin at 1pm at The Wallis in Beverly Hills. B&C will performed later in the afternoon at 3:30pm.
wild Up is an experimental classical ensemble. A flexible band of Los Angeles musicians committed to creating visceral, thought-provoking happenings. The group, led by artistic director and conductor Christopher Rountree, unites around the belief that no music is off limits, and that a concert space should be as moving as the music heard in it: small, powerful and unlike anything else. Our projects are meant to bring people together, defy convention and address the need for heart-wrenching, mind-bending experiences.
The Industry creates experimental productions that expand the traditional definition of opera. By merging media and through interdisciplinary collaborations, we produce works that inspire new audiences for the art form. We believe that new opera opens space for imagination, engagement, dialogue, and connection. The Industry serves as an incubator for new talent and for artists predominantly based in Los Angeles.
