ART CONNECTION: AMPLIFIED URBANISM
A San Diego Symphony Salon Series Presentation at the Jacobs Music Center
As city planners and architects unveil their visions of cities that are denser, taller and more diverse, and yet perhaps more isolated, what is the Vision?
Tuesday, May 9, 2017 7:30PM
Copley Symphony Hall
As city planners and architects unveil their visions of cities that are denser, taller and more diverse, and yet perhaps more isolated, what is the role of arts and culture in these new megalopolises? Do artists play a role in the evolution of city design? Will cities of the future provide spaces for creativity and performance? Will the arts play a central role in our future cities or exist on the periphery? This panel discussion will be moderated by Arthur Cohen and includes Cathy Simon, architect, Benjamin Grant, city planner and local architect Jennifer Luce of Luce Et Studio.
This edition of Art Connection will also feature a chamber version performance of Aaron Copland's Quiet City by Micah Wilkinson, trumpet (SDSO), Mark Shannon, alto saxophone, Frank Renk, clarinet/bass clarinet (SDSO) and Bryan Verhoye, piano.
This is event is FREE, but ticketed. Lobby and bars open at 6:30pm. Reserve your tickets today by clicking “purchase”! Go to the symphony website:
