A Place for Us: Symphony & Chorus
Inspired by Leonard Bernstein's dedication to making classical music accessible to all communities, a special arrangement of the West Side Story classic "Somewhere" is set to be performed at the Skirball Cultural Center by the Harmony Project and the Urban Voices Project: A Skid Row Choir. Conducted by Nick Alvarez, the Harmony Project orchestra showcases the talents of students from underserved areas in L.A., and they'll also play compositions by Richard Meyer, Tito Puente and Robert Buckley, as well as the Carly Rae Jepsen song "Call Me Maybe." The Urban Voices Project, under the direction of Leeav Sofer, brings the joy of music to disenfranchised and homeless communities throughout LA County. They'll take the stage to sing music by Jason Mraz and Kirk Franklin, plus "It's Quiet Uptown" from the Lin-Manuel Miranda hit musical Hamilton. A Q&A with the performers, moderated by Myka Miller (Executive Director of the Harmony Project), follows the concert.
