We’ve curated a number of sound pieces as part of the Getty Center Family Festival happening Saturday, October 22nd from 10am to 6pm.

Performances include:

  • Chris Kallmyer and Loren Marsteller will be performing “Our Shared Terrain” featuring two alphorns.
  • Pianists Richard Valitutto, Ingrid Lee, and Emi Tamura will play “Serious Music on a Funny Instrument,” a work featuring a toy piano repertoire.
  • Local composer Paul Fraser has gathered an ensemble who will be playing original compositions with mallets on the Getty Center’s pitched travertine-tiled wall..
  • Innovative choral group Singing By Numbers will travel from one location to the next, experimenting with new methods in teaching harmonic singing.
