Calling all Musicians!
This Deadline Expired: Tuesday, October 31, 2017
Join hundreds of musicians ranging in age, skill set and background to play a new score written by Pulitzer-Prize winning composer, David Lang. This once-in-a-lifetime performance, featuring hundreds of broken instruments collected from the School District of Philadelphia, will take place on December 3rd, 2017 at the 23rd Street Armory.
In 2016, Temple Contemporary collected and cataloged nearly 1000 instruments in need of repair from classrooms across the city. After the curtain has closed on December 3rd, all fixable instruments will be repaired and returned to the School District of Philadelphia with repair kits for each classroom. In addition, adoptions secured through the Fund for the School District of Philadelphia will go toward a repairs fund for these instruments moving forward.
Sign up to be considered to play in the orchestra.
