SFCMP Presents “Unsilent Night” by Phil Kline December 2017

SFCMP Presents “Unsilent Night” by Phil Kline December 2017

We hope you’ll join us for this family-friendly, 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 in and around San Francisco’s Dolores Park area, creating a unique mobile sound sculpture.

Who’s Invited: Everybody! A family-friendly, public event. Free.
When: Sat, Dec 9, 2017 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm Rain or Shine! Bring your sound rig and music. A few cassette tapes are available.
Meet at: Mission Dolores Park. Meet on Dolores Street at the Dolores Park tennis courts by the corner of 18th St.
