Following the success of HIDDEN ROOMS and STORIES in 2018, Art At The Rendon is creating a new site-specific experience at The Rendon building on the corner of E. 7th St and S. Santa Fe Ave in the DTLA Arts District that celebrates the musical and cultural diversity of Los Angeles. RHYTHMS OF THE CITY will fuse various styles of live music into a simultaneous, collaborative performance.
100% of proceeds will benefit Play with Music, a local nonprofit that provides music education to underserved schools in Los Angeles. As immigrants from all over the world have relocated to Los Angeles to build new lives, they’ve brought their musical history with them. RHYTHMS OF THE CITY will honor that musical diversity, uniting everyone from jazz to Afro-Cuban pop, chamber music to mariachi bands, in a collective musical performance. Grammy winning composer Heitor Pereira is writing the music for RHYTHMS OF THE CITY, and we are bringing together selected musicians from varying cultures and musical disciplines, including bands, soloists, and ensembles, to perform the work simultaneously. Through the music’s shared refrain, these diverse artists will represent Los Angeles as a whole.
The RHYTHMS OF THE CITY audience will have timed tickets to explore the hotel during this one-of-a-kind performance, feeling the heartbeat of the city and its unexpected harmonies from within. They will experience the overall piece either from the threshold of each room or as they roam the corridors, light well, and perimeter of the building.
Tickets include 2 free drink tickets valid at Licha’s Bar on the ground floor of the Rendon.
• Food will be available for purchase in the Rendon parking lot.
• Limited free parking (150 spaces) will be available one block away at Everest Trading Co. at 655 S. Santa Fe Ave. (entrance on Jesse St.) Street parking is also available. Rideshare is encouraged for all attendees.
