Public art explores music and distance, UC Chamber Chorus is there

Over the weekend of October 25 to 27, composer Lisa Bielawa’s “Crissy Broadcast” took place in San Francisco’s Crissy Field. The concert functioned as a work of public art in which both professional and amateur performers participated including the UC Chamber Chorus directed by Marika Kuzma. Musicians performed short musical pieces while walking away from one another forming a choreographed pinwheel in the vast open space of Crissy Field. In this sense, each musician cannot hear the other and must perform according to his or her own sense of time resulting in an interesting piece for the audience to both observe and hear.
