Your Song, Your Story: A Musical Tapestry of and for San Diego, is a two-year audience engagement initiative that will depart from the San Diego Symphony’s traditional approach to community engagement by inviting residents of historically underserved neighborhoods to participate in the creation and performance of art. Music, stories and dance will be contributed by people of all ages and backgrounds. These contributions will be made via various forms of media technology at community sites and festivals. Individuals will also be encouraged to submit their recordings directly onto our website. The submissions will then be considered for inclusion in an original orchestral piece. The final work will be a multi-media piece that will be performed for the public free of charge. We hope to collect contributed material from at least 300 individuals. Performances of the new work are planned for an audience of at least 5,000 people, including 2,000 at Copley Symphony Hall.
