Iceland's Music Explosion
In Reykjavík’s close-knit artistic community, the contemporary music scene is indistinguishable from the rock, pop, and electronic music scenes. A hallmark of our season is the Reykjavík Festival, curated by Esa-Pekka Salonen and Daníel Bjarnason, which will highlight the creativity thriving in Iceland’s capital. Passing seamlessly across a wide spectrum of music, the festival encompasses Green Umbrella, World Music, Toyota Symphonies for Youth programs, orchestral concerts with Salonen, popular music and interdisciplinary partnerships, visual and installation art, lectures and film.
- A new installation by Icelandic artist Shoplifter will be viewable in BP Hall throughout the Reykjavik Festival.
- Xárene Eskandar’s film Driving at the speed of the Nordic sun will be screened continuously in Walt Disney Concert Hall’s Keck Auditorium.
- Please note: The Sunday, April 9 performance of Schola Cantorum Reykjavík will be held at the Shatto Chapel of First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. The address is 540 Commonwealth Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90020. For more information, please call 213.355.5237.
