8pm January 14th, 2012 at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena.
The Music of: Messiaen, Haydn, Charlie Parker, Brian Ferneyhough and Andrew Bird.
On Saturday, Jan. 14, the L.A.-based classical wunderkinds wild Up take over the intimate Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena with a one-of-a-kind show about birds and flight.
“We want to know how flight works and what it sounds like,” said the group’s artist director and conductor Christopher Rountree. “We want to figure out how to take off.” The audience need not prepare for a lecture about Newton’s laws and lift; the program gets off the ground with composer/ornithologist Olivier Messiaen’s magnum opus “Oiseaux Exotiques.” From there, the group takes on pieces by Brian Ferneyhough, Charlie Parker, Joseph Haydn, Chris Kallmyer and Andrew Bird.
As always, there will be plenty of booze and no tuxedos.
When: Saturday 1/14/12 at 8 PM
About wild Up:
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.
