About Duet: Parkway
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 private monuments and the spaces we occupy and pass by without consciously knowing their history or cultural significance.

How can we treat the way we understand space to be a rehearsal? How can we re-learn and re-establish an understanding of history collectively as we re-learn how to come together again?

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.
