The wild Up Collective is an experimental classical ensemble featuring a flexible band of Los Angeles musicians committed to creating visceral, thought-provoking happenings. The group, led by artistic director and conductor Christopher Rountree, unites around the belief that no music is off limits, and that a concert space should be as moving as the music heard in it: small, powerful and unlike anything else. Their projects are meant to bring people together, defy convention and address the need for heart-wrenching, mind-bending experiences. Join music fans of all types for the closing event in the 2017 Fall Music Series presented by Music @ Boston Court featuring a solo concert by Matt Cook, founding member of the LA Percussion Quartet.
