Downtown at Sundown

Thursday, Jan 17, 2019 - 5:00 PM-8:00 PM

Visual and performing arts converge at MCASD’s after-hours offering: Downtown at Sundown. On the third Thursday of every month, enjoy free Museum admission and exhibition tours, DJ-spun tunes, free entry at SDSU Downtown Gallery, drink specials at the adjacent Stone Brewing Company Store, and so much more.

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.
