Now Hear This! Performance Art in the Streets!

On Saturday, October 29, it’s music in the streets. And, it should be experienced.

“Playing Apart,” conducted by artists Jon Rubin and Lee Walton, will dismantle an entire 90-piece marching band from Bear Creek High School into single performers who will each start playing their instrument on various corners of downtown Denver, then taking specific walking routes, collectively covering one-square mile of the city. Mimicking the experience of city life, band members will intersect randomly in an unpredictable mash-up of instruments and sounds. This piece of art will be performed twice, in two different quadrants of downtown.

Performance 1 is from 1:30-2:00 in an area bounded by Blake Street, 14th, California and 20th Street. Performance 2 is 4:00-4:30 in an area bounded by Blake Street, 20th Street, California and 26th Street. You can see more information here.

And, what will they actually play? Your favorite song by Twisted Sister, of course!
