Air~ | A Series of Multi-disciplinary piano concerts @ The Mundi Project (SLC & WVC: March 21, May 10, May 15)

For Immediate Release:
The Mundi Project will be presenting a series of multi-disciplinary piano concerts; Air~ on March 21, 2012 through May 29, 2012. In preparation for the “Air” concerts, the organization is partnering /collaborating with the Utah Cultural Celebration Center (UCCC), Repertory Dance Theatre (RDT), the Sorenson Unity Center (UC), and the Salt Lake School District (SLSD) in a project that brings attention to environmental and geological issues through the arts.

Prior to the performances, UCCC hosted workshops (January 2011) for West Valley students in poetry and ink-illustration based on classical piano repertoire being performed by in the concerts. The illustrations were digitally colorized and manipulated by teens in a Photoshop workshop held at the Computer Club House (Sorenson Unity Center, February 2012) and will be projected during the performances.

The purpose of Mundi Project Piano Ambassadors is to introduce audiences to classical piano literature that expresses the different components of air through piano performance, visual art, dance, and the spoken word.

Throughout February and March, Mundi Project is providing dance and art workshops to youth to several after-school programs in the Salt Lake School District that combine artwork with learning about sustainable/alternative energy sources, air-quality, aero-nautical science, sound waves,  and cosmic rays. This artwork becomes an integral part in the final performance performances. All performances are free and open to the general public.
