The Musical Swings: An Exercise in Musical Cooperation

October 13, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until October 13, 2019

Free

The Musical Swings will be FREE and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. beginning Sept. 20 and lasting through Oct. 13 at Bicentennial Park on the east lawn of Civic Center Music Hall.

The Montreal-based interactive art installation that has toured New York City, San Jose, Detroit, West Palm Beach and Green Mountain Falls is coming to Oklahoma City Sept. 20 through Oct. 13, 2019! The Musical Swings is a giant collective instrument known for encouraging collaborative behaviors between strangers. Each swing in motion triggers a different note from a different instrument, composing musical pieces in which certain melodies emerge only through cooperation.
