For the first Downtown at Sundown of 2019, San Diego Symphony will present excerpts of Cornelius Cardew’s experimental masterpiece The Great Learning: Paragraph 7 (with words by the Chinese philosopher Confucius). A chorus of singers led by UC San Diego vocal ensemble, kallisti — and audience members too – will walk through the galleries while singing Cardew’s semi-improvised score to create a uniquely immersive and interactive sound-scape. Check program upon arrival to the Museum for specific performance times.
