Music Box Workshop With Phyllis Chen at Philadelphia's Magic Gardens
One of the projects that I really wanted to do was to create a grand music box, an exquisite corpse piece with the community of Philadelphia. – Phyllis Chen
Inspired by artist Isaiah Zagar’s colorful mosaics at Philadelphia's Magic Gardens, In Plain Air composer Phyllis Chen is working with the community to create a 400-foot music box strip. Join us at Magic Gardens on Sunday, July 8, 12:00-4:00pm, to create your own one-foot section of Phyllis’ music box mosaic. We will explore music boxes and create music by drawing on and punching holes in special music box paper. Short, family-friendly music box performances by Phyllis will be at 12:30, 2:00, and 3:30pm.
On September 22 and 23, strips created during the workshop will appear in the premiere performances of In Plain Air by International Contemporary Ensemble.
