Free San Francisco community event

Join us for a free holiday event linked to “Unsilent Night” celebrations around the world. The original composition by Phil Kline, written specifically to be heard outdoors in the month of December, takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer. Each participant plays one of four tracks of music downloaded to a smart phone, or anything that amplifies music, together comprising “Unsilent Night.” As the SFCMP public ensemble, we will walk a carefully chosen route through San Francisco, creating a unique mobile sound sculpture.

Who’s Invited: Everybody! A family-friendly, public event. Free.
When: Sat, Dec 10th, 2016. 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm  Rain or Shine!
Meet at: Mission Dolores Park. Meet on Dolores Street at the Dolores Park tennis courts by the corner of 18th St.
