Downtown at Sundown

Thursday, Jan 17, 2019 - 5:00 PM to Friday, Jan 18, 2019 - 7:45 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) as part of the Hearing the Future festival. A chorus of singers led by UC San Diego vocal ensemble kallisti, members of the San Diego Master Chorale, 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. Learn more about the San Diego Symphony's Hearing the Future festival

At the SDSU Downtown Gallery, guests can enjoy beats by DJ Air Nandez, who will cruise over on his bicycle-turned-turn tables for two sets at 6:15 and 7:15 PM.

Hungry for more? Enjoy light bites from Eat your Heart Out! San Diego, and specials at Stone Brewing Company Store and our neighborhood restaurant partner, AAHARN by Koon Thai.
