Classical Music and Beatboxing
We like symphony orchestras, but we know also that to survive, they have to rethink almost everything they've ever done. They know how to put on a concert, but do they know how to put on a show? Carolyn Kuan, the young new conductor of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra is taking this challenge head on. Kuan has worked in the past on lavish out-of-the-box productions, most notably a work fusing the multi-media images of Franz Lanting with a score by Philip Glass. The challenge always, is to preserve the integrity of a symphony concert while injecting something new and lively. Like beatboxing, a form of vocal percussion associated with hiphop. We'll catch up with Carolyn today as she gets ready for a massive free concert in Bushnell Park, and we'll teach you -- and Chion Wolf-- about beatboxing. We have a lot of beatboxers here today.
