Visual And Performing Arts Converge At Downtown At Sundown

The first Downtown at Sundown of 2019 at The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego aims to create a truly unique, immersive experience combining both the visual and performing arts. The Museum is teaming up with the San Diego Symphony  to present excerpts of Cornelius Cardew’s experimental masterpiece The Great Learning: Paragraph 7 (with words by the Chinese philosopher Confucius) as part of the Hearing the Future festival.

“Immersive Soundscape”

A chorus of singers led by UC San Diego vocal ensemble kallisti will walk through the galleries while singing Cardew’s semi-improvised score. This is for the purpose of creating a uniquely immersive and interactive sound-scape. Members of the San Diego Master Chorale, and audience members will be part of it, too!
