Online Film Premiere: The Way Forward | April 29, 2021 1PM MDT

One of our great pleasures has been partnering with peer cultural organizations, which we admire deeply, to share their treasured concerts and productions with our Tippet Rise audience.

We hope you will join us in watching the premiere of The Way Forward, a film from our friends at the Colburn School in Los Angeles, under the direction of Hamid Shams.

The Way Forward reimagines the concert-going experience for the digital age. Filmed remotely in Australia, Canada, Finland, England, Spain, and on the Colburn campus,The Way Forward is a visually stunning narrative featuring ballet, classical music, jazz, opera, and Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir 6, with 17,572 singers from 129 countries.

The film features performances by Esa-Pekka Salonen, Danielle de Niese, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Kris Bowers, Fabio Bidini, Clive Greensmith, The Calidore String Quartet, and others, plus a special appearance by Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz.
