wild Up is a modern music collective – a group of Los Angeles-based musicians committed to creating visceral, thought-provoking happenings that defy convention. They push beyond the constraints of the concert hall to reach audiences where the beating heart of the community resides, in spaces as transcendent and varied as their experimental classical sound.
wild Up believes that great ideas, empowered by the megaphone of art, are capable of affecting great social change. The group will participate in a week-long residency with UMD School of Music students, who will perform new commissions from activist composers in a final performance.
The Clarice's Visiting Artist Series brings you the Speed of Sound Sessions (S.O.S.), a celebration of musicians who support and promote composers whose work was created in the 21st century and who respond to the contemporary world in which we live. The S.O.S. Sessions are a fun, interactive way to engage with adventurers just like you.
