wild Up is a 24-member experimental classical/contemporary ensemble comprised 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. wild Up projects bring people together, defy convention and address the need for heart-wrenching, mind-bending experiences.
