wild Up is the Los Angeles contemporary music ensemble lauded as “Searing. Penetrating. And thrilling” by Fred Child of Performance Today, “Magnificent” and “Best in Classical Music 2012” by Mark Swed of the Los Angeles Times. Led by Artistic Director, Christopher Rountree the ensemble is brought together around the premise that music is a catalyst for shared experience, and that a concert venue is a place for challenging, exciting, and igniting the surrounding community.
Since appearing in 2010 wild Up has been Orchestra in Residence at the Hammer Museum and Ensemble in Residence with American Composers Orchestra. In 2013 they made their debut on the the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Brooklyn Festival, and had their first collaborative projects with The Colburn Conservatory of Music. The group has been featured at a number of Los Angeles’ prominent cultural spaces including: the Edye at the Broad Stage, Zipper Hall, REDCAT under Walt Disney Concert Hall, Beyond Baroque, the Armory Center for the Arts, and the Jensen Rec. Center Studio. Their recordings of Shostakovich, Rzewski and Messiaen have been featured on KUSC, KPFK and American Public Media’s Performance Today.
