Independence Historical Park
Saturday, April 2, 2022

About Duet: Old City
How can we begin to engage with another person as we start to come together again?

This public rehearsal explores this question as trained choir singers engage passersby with the simple question “Would you like to sing with me?”

These locations around Independence Historic Park explore public monuments and the spaces we collectively understand and consciously occupy as markers of shared history.

How do collective gathering spaces, such as public monuments and parks, allow for us to be together?

About Rehearsing Philadelphia
Created by Ari Benjamin Meyers and jointly produced and presented by the Curtis Institute of Music and Drexel University’s Westphal College of Media Arts & Design, this large-scale public project explores how we can come together as a city through musical rehearsal.

The future will be rehearsed, not perfected. Rehearsing Philadelphia re-examines the rehearsal processes which allow people to act together and be empowered to create new realities.
