Join WAPA on a Musical Hike!
Enjoy the views and music at the Baldwin Hills Scenic OverlookJoin fellow Wellesley Alum Pride Alliance (WAPA) folx in checking out ‘Intrinsic Strings' on Saturday, August 24th. We'll meet at 5:45 PM and start the musical hike at 6 PM.
Per the site’s page, ‘Intrinsic Strings’ is a transformative, site-specific immersive concert experience that will take place throughout the Culver Stairs and the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook. The concert is free and will integrate live orchestral musicians with virtual reality in an exploration of what unites us, empowers us, and creates joy in our lives.
The Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook has three ways to reach the top: a 0.7 mile, 282 step staircase; a 1.25 mile switchback trail; or a short drive along the overlook's perimeter. Attendees will traverse one of the three paths to the top of the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, while the intrinsic sounds of chamber music are performed alongside the chatter of nature and buzz of the city creating a “musical trail.” The concert features music by LA-based contemporary film and video game composers, Jeff Rona, Penka Kouneva, Drum & Lace, Emer Kinsella, Allyson Newman, Damir Price and Ben Coria. Performers will share their collective insight into how music can act as a vehicle to unite people and create community in large metropolitan areas. Vresh, a 360 social media company, will integrate 360 degree visuals containing story concepts of individuals in Los Angeles overcoming daily obstacles, creating a "trail of stories".
This concert was created by Emer Kinsella of Emersion Music and aims to bring awareness to internalized fear and isolation by encouraging Angelenos to find support and solidarity with other members in the community by embracing and conquering the climb together.
