Louisville Broadcast – Shelby Park

Sunday, April 23, 2023 11:30am

Event Description

Event Details:

Louisville Broadcast – presented by the Louisville Orchestra and composed by LO Creators Corps resident composer, Lisa Bielawa –  integrates music and contemporary urban life beyond the concert hall tradition on a huge scale. This 45-minute site-specific performance will engage multiple musical communities and celebrate the public life that now animates the city of Louisville, KY. The event is free to the public and will happen among the regular public uses of city space without any added electrical equipment, seating, or ticketing.

Louisville Broadcast will involve hundreds of professional, amateur, and student musicians of all ages and backgrounds. Multiple musical groups will participate, including students from the Louisville Academy of Music; bands and orchestras from several JCPS schools; Louisville Classical Academy’s Chime Choir; Louisville Civic Orchestra; the University of Louisville School of Music Orchestra; VOICES of Kentuckiana; the Louisville Leopards; and more. Lisa Bielawa will compose music customized for each group’s instrumentation and playing ability. She will also map out an individual “movement path” throughout the sites for each ensemble.
