String Theory To Transform Hollywood Stage Into Giant Playable Harp
String Theory will perform at the Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood on Thursday, September 15, at 8pm and will transform the Ford stage into giant playable harp.
String Theory will perform an evening of eclectic music, video installations and dance featuring the signature Curve Harp at the beautiful outdoor amphitheatre nestled in the Hollywood Hills. The Harp will extend the entire length of the theater, over the audience, setting them inside the instrument and under the stars.
The ensemble will premiere new works and present a collaboration with special guest David Poe, who will also perform his own music. The event promises to be a thrilling evening of music, dance and performance art.
String Theory accompanies their Harps with cello, Theremin, violin, saxophone, bass, guitar, keys, saw, accordion, tablas, flute, samples, a myriad of exotic and invented percussion, and vocals. Their music ranges from 15th century Renaissance to rock, electronica and experimental. Contemporary dance is woven into the performance incorporating the large-scale instruments and the dynamic landscape that is created by the installations.
The evening will also include a special performance by students in the Education Through Music program which serves disadvantaged youth in the LA area. Audience members are encouraged to bring unwanted cellos, guitars or violins to the event to donate to the organization.
Earlier this year, String Theory sold out at the Eli & Broad Stage in Santa Monica. They perform at events around the USA and abroad including the Grammys, Walt Disney Concert Hall and the World Festival of Sacred Music.
