At the Adrienne Arsht Center, dancers, singers and musicians from all over Miami rehearse for the 1000th Random Acts of Culture funded by the Knight Foundation.
What: A “pop up performance” featuring 200 singers, musicians, drummers, and dancers. Jazz dancers and Afro-Cuban drummers will accompany choir members and classical musicians as they perform a new arrangement of Beethoven’s recognized melody “Ode to Joy” on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach.
This 8 minute performance is a celebration to mark the 1,000th performances of Knight
Foundation’s Random Acts of Culture, http://www.randomactsofculture.org
Why: In the past 2 years, communities in 8 cities around the country experienced Knight Foundation’s Random Acts of Culture as part of the Knight Foundation’s initiative to introduce new ways the arts are presented. The Foundation hired local artists and produced events that succeeded in bringing music and dance out of the symphony halls, into the streets and into everyday lives. Past performance venues include airports, lobbies, department stores, farmers’ markets and trains, surprising people as they go about everyday living.
Miami Beach and Philadelphia (on Sept. 15) are the last two Random Acts of Culture.
Who: Coordinated by the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, 200 singers, musicians, drummers and dancers from all over Miami-Dade County will gather together for a pop up performance of drumming and dance set to a new arrangement of "Ode to Joy" by Miami-based conductor and arranger Sam Hyken of the Miami Music Project. Integrating classical, vocal, jazz, gospel and Afro-Cuban rhythms, artists include musicians from the Miami Music Project and the Frost School of Music, singers from the Miami Mass Choir and Master Chorale, drummers and dancers from Ife-Ile Afro-Cuban dance company, and dance students from the 2012 Ailey Camp and the Edwin Holland Dance Ensemble.

Once upon a time, this was an intro for my demo reel... which needs a update. I thought it would be funny to directly ask to be hired at the end... not sure that worked to my advantage!
