On May 20, visit The Skirball Cultural Center for A Place for Us — A Performance with Harmony Project & Urban Voices Project: A Skid Row Choir.
Inspired by Leonard Bernstein’s mission of making classical music accessible to all, hear a special arrangement of the West Side Story classic “Somewhere,” plus an uplifting symphonic and choral repertoire performed by the Harmony Project and the Urban Voices Project: A Skid Row Choir.
The Harmony Project orchestra showcases the talents of students from underserved areas in L.A. The Urban Voices Project brings music to disenfranchised and homeless communities throughout Los Angeles County.
The Harmony Project orchestra will also perform arrangments of compositions by Richard Meyer, Tito Puente, and Robert Buckley, and the Carly Rae Jepsen song “Call Me Maybe.” Then the Urban Voices Project choir will take the stage to sing music by Jason Mraz and Kirk Franklin, plus “It’s Quiet Uptown” from Hamilton.
A Q&A with the performers, moderated by Myka Miller (Executive Director of the Harmony Project), follows the performance.
