We have some very exciting news, well, we think it’s pretty exciting, you can make your own mind up I guess.
As you may have heard there is a great festival happening at The Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA, in collaboration with The LAPhil. The festival spans two weeks and celebrates all things Icelandic music related. So, naturally, it is called The Reykjavík Festival.
In Reykjavík’s close-knit artistic community, the contemporary music scene is indistinguishable from the rock, pop, and electronic music scenes. A hallmark of The LAPhil season is the Reykjavík Festival, curated by Esa-Pekka Salonen and Daníel Bjarnason, which will highlight the creativity thriving in Iceland’s capital. Passing seamlessly across a wide spectrum of music, the festival encompasses Green Umbrella, World Music, Toyota Symphonies for Youth programs, orchestral concerts with Salonen, popular music and interdisciplinary partnerships, visual and installation art, lectures and film.
This will be a wonderfully delicate and powerful set of performances in a beautiful space, the Walt Disney Concert Hall is a building of huge importance and other worldly aesthetics.
If you are in LA, come join in the fun! Tickets can be purchased here.
We’ll be updating more about the festival, over the next few months. Stay tuned!
