This Sunday, April 12 at 3pm, the Long Beach Symphony presents “Percussion at Pyramidial!”

After visiting the museum for the final day of our exhibitions, join the Long Beach Symphony's Percussion Consortium for a free, outdoor public performance in and around (and inspired by) CSULB student-designed MatterApp: Pyramidial. Bring your blanket, a low beach chair, and a sun hat and spread out on the lawn for a percussion performance featuring a 5 octave marimba, hang drum, chimes, cymbals, drums, and Tibetan bowls. Be prepared to enter into a kaleidoscopic, interactive, and improvisatory soundscape with pounding live music from living composers.

MA:P is between the Walter Pyramid and the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music. Call (562) 436-3203 ext. 228 for additional information. Performance is free and open to the public, with a free bike valet. Free parking is available in level one of Parking Structure 1.

Visit the Long Beach Symphony website for more information.

The Long Beach Symphony, Sounds & Spaces and the Long Beach Symphony Percussion Ensemble are delighted to be collaborating with the CSULB Art Museum and the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music. The mission of the Sounds & Spaces series is to enrich our community and develop new relationships through accessible, innovative and non-traditional chamber music events in significant community spaces.

MatterApp: Pyramidial (MA:P) is a crowd-sourced space-frame sculpture inspired by the Walter Pyramid and created through a collaboration between the University Art Museum, the Los Angeles-based nonprofit Materials and Applications and the students in CSULB Design faculty member Heather Barker’s “Environmental Communication Design” course.
