The Wild Beast Concert Series at CalArts, April 14, 2012

The Wild Beast Concert Series at CalArts, April 14, 2012

CalArts held its 2nd annual “The Wild Beast Concert Series”, featuring CalArts Brass Signals Day into Night, on Saturday April 14th.
This is a free and open to the public concert series, organized outdoors under the stars. This year however, due to the rainy and cold weather, the concert had to move indoors. The venue was overflowing with enthusiast spectators of all ages. More than 120 people enjoyed this year’s concert. According to Lauren Pratt, Special Assistant to the Dean for Programming and Finance at CalArts, the concert was heavily publicised withing the Newhall School District Music Program, consequently present at the event were numerous aspiring musicians, specifically wind intruments players. What a great inspiration for the youth in our community!
The program included: Three Movements from Romeo and Juliet (Sergei Prokofiev), Metallics (Yan Maresz), Konzertmusik op.49 (Paul Hindemith), Clockworks (Mats Larsson), Signals from Heaven (Toru Takemitsu) and Pines of the Appian Way from the Pines of Rome (Ottorino Respighi).
The CalArts Brass Ensemble featured talented students and some alumni on trumpets, horns, trombones, tubas and guests on trumpets, euphonium, harp, piano and percussion.
During Signals from Heaven, a piece chosen to frame Paths, the audience learned that this is a performance with a twist. As we learn from David Rosenboom, the Dean of the School of Music at CalArts, Paths is “an imagined conversation between the composer (represented by a muted trumpet) and his mentor”. The conversation at CalArts took place between two hidden trumpet soloists.
“Last year, the inaugural year of The Wild Beast Concert Series, more than 1600 people (…) converged under the stars, on our campus, to enjoy a wide variety of live musical experiences” says Rosenboom. Being “vibrant, interesting and interesting”, this year’s concert promises a great series.





The concert was scheduled outdoors, however due to the weather, it was


moved indoors. There were obviously no seats available.


The students prepared the instruments, the stage and layout changes between performances.

The students, alumni and performing guests, conductor Edward Carroll, received


a well-deserved round of applause. What a great show! Don’t miss the next year’s event!


As the guests were leaving the venue into the cold April night,


two students played an additional work on the outdoor stage.
