Join the Mitchell Center, in collaboration with Buffalo Bayou Partnership for a free interactive holiday event, Unsilent Night. New York composer, Phil Kline, created this 43 minute piece, written specifically to be heard outdoors in the month of December. It takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer. Each participant gets one of four tracks of music that can easily be downloaded on your smart phone – you will be downloading the app once you arrive. When participants play their different “parts” simultaneously, it helps create the special sound of the piece.
