FREE Symphony Concert - July 15

PLEASE NOTE — You must RSVP here to attend this free event: http://yoursongyourstory.org/rsvp/

Performance: 1:15 pm Tuesday, July 15

Your Song, Your Story: A Musical Tapestry of and for San Diego, is a two-year audience engagement initiative that departs from the San Diego Symphony’s traditional approach to community engagement by inviting residents of historically underserved neighborhoods to participate in the creation and performance of art. Music, stories and dance were contributed by people of all ages and backgrounds. These contributions were made via various forms of media technology at community sites and festivals including camcorders and cell phone videos. Individuals were encouraged to submit their recordings directly onto our website. Over 320 submissions were then considered for inclusion in an original orchestral piece and 18 submissions were chosen. The final work is a multi-media piece that will be performed for the public free of charge. Performances of the new work are planned for an audience of at least 5,000 people, including 2,000 at Copley Symphony Hall in July, 2014. 

(CLICK HERE for a recent story about composer Bill Conti and Your Song, Your Story on KPBS-FM! And CLICK HERE for the full 15 minute interview!)

In order to engage community members to participate in the co-creation of the Your Song, Your Story original composition, the San Diego Symphony sent small ensembles of its musicians to community sites in ethnically diverse communities. They have been performing in ensembles, introducing the project, and providing opportunities for community members to record their songs, stories and dances. The videography team composed of our professional videographer and a team of volunteers also attended and videotaped performances, stories, and captured video footage at community festivals during the months between March and August 2013.

    I loved the venue today. Every seat was great! Although it was a repeat of the first event, I love that I could hear the singers very well. It was good seeing Thad and meeting Mary. We saw Phil walk in but he couldn't see me waving at him like a lunatic :)
