The mission of Musicians at Play (MAP) is to promote awareness of Los Angeles’ musical heritage through professional live performances, offer music education and mentorship programs, and create diverse community partnerships.
The angklung is a musical instrument from Indonesia made of two to four bamboo tubes attached to a bamboo frame. The tubes are carved to have a resonant pitch when struck and are tuned to octaves, similar to american handbells. The base of the frame is held in one hand, whilst the other hand shakes the instrument. This causes a repeating note to sound.
The angklung is popular throughout Southeast Asia, but it originated in what is now West Java and Banten provinces in Indonesia, and has been played by the Sundanese for many centuries. Angklung and its music has become the cultural identity of Sundanese communities in West Java and Banten. Playing angklung as an orchestra requires cooperation and coordination, and is believed promotes the values of teamwork, mutual respect and social harmony.
MAP believes without exposing young people to live music, it could be lost forever. For that reason, Musicians At Play has created a mentorship program that works with schools and music teachers to help educate the next generation of musicians and music lovers.
We are proud to announce our partnership with New Roads School in Santa Monica, CA. Musicians At Play will sponsor a series of master classes providing selected guest artists in a very interactive program. Our guest artists will actually rehearse and perform WITH these talented young students in three different concerts during the school year.
MAP is honored to welcome Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino and the Hollywood Studio Symphony Orchestra for two special performances of “ We Have To Go Back” The Lost Concert LA at the Ford Theatre’s in Hollywood on September 22 & 23, 2016 . The concert presents the dramatic score and story of LOST in two acts. Special guest actors will narrate and read letters from the island where LOST took place. The natural backdrop of trees of the newly remodeled Ford Amphitheater sets the scene on a mysterious Island somewhere in the South Pacific Ocean.
