CalArts, The Wild Beast — Opening Gala

Mar 10, 2010 — CalArts is pleased to announce the official opening and celebration of its new music pavilion, The Wild Beast. Headlining the program will be CalArts’ magical World Percussion Ensemble, led by Randy Gloss and Houman Pourmehdi, in rich and dazzling displays of virtuosity drawn from musical traditions worldwide. Joining the ensemble will be special guest, Abbos Kosimov, internationally renowned musician from Uzbekistan, especially noted for his mastery of the dorya (frame drum). Kosimov has performed and recorded with Stevie Wonder, the Hand’s OnSemble, Zakir Hussain, and many others.

The program will also feature a special surprise, a long-distance, bi-coastal link between CalArts musicians playing on stage in The Wild Beast together with others in a distant location, all facilitated by pianos and Disklaviers provided by Yamaha Corporation that will be directly linked via telecommunications technology to enable a real-time, transcontinental ensemble.

Enjoy this celebration in The Wild Beast’s open-air music pavilion configuration with both fixed and lawn seating. Blankets are encouraged and picnics are welcome.
