wild UP is a 24-member experimental classical/contemporary ensemble comprised of Los Angeles musicians committed to creating visceral, thought-provoking happenings. The group, led by artistic director and conductor Christopher Rountree, unites around the belief that no music is off limits, and that a concert space should be as moving as the music heard in it: small, powerful and unlike anything else.
Their projects are meant to bring people together, defy convention and address the need for heart-wrenching, mind-bending experiences.
About The Armory
There’s a place that exists. It used to hold munitions, but now children play in it all day making art.
One of our main goals in performance is to be inspired by the space we’re performing in — this program is about the Armory itself. It’s about, people, art, war and peace.
Featuring the music of:
folk songs inspired by James Taylor and Peter, Paul and Mary
Andrew Tholl’s bombastic still not a place to build monuments or cathedrals
world premiers about war and peace by Andrew McIntosh, Joshua Bornfield and Chris Kallmyer
and a staged performance of Stravinsky’s Soldier’s Tale
We make music.
New music. Old music.
We'll play it, as long as we love it.
